best brakes...

I need to throw some brakes on my bike so I can start riding trails again. Just looking for opinions on the best brakes. Probably gonna get Fly brakes, but was maybe thinking about demolition.

If you want the best, go with Fly or Revenge- I would trust those way more than I would trust Demolition brakes.

Fly brakes. They are amazing. Make sure you get the brake for their respective locations i.e seatstay or chainstay brake.

I'd be using fly's if I wasn't so cheap, but the Odyssey Evolvers work pretty good.

Not really if you consider the price. The evo II's I'm sure stop just as well and are half the price.

Yes I have acctually, and both the versions of the evolvers. They didnt feel any different to me in terms of stopping power, and to me the huge price difference isnt worth going with the flys.

I'd get Evo 2's over Fly's anyday. Unless of course the Flys were free and the Odyssey's weren't.

No not really. I don't like/want/have their stems, cassettes, seats, posts, grips, and levers. But they do have some awesome rims, forks, tires and brakes.

I didn't say there was a problem with it. I like Odyssey products. I wouldn't ride any other custom wheel without an Odyssey sticker on it (or G-Sport).
