Shimano Hydraulic Disks vs. Hayes

Anyone have any prefrence? although the hayes have more good reviews, it seems the shimanos make up for it with price (Or lack thereof).

I don't like that shimano centerlock crap. They are trying to integrate everything so bikes will have to be full shimano.

So my vote goes to hayes, plus my mags have never let me down.

I heart hopes!

I actually think that the centerlock is a great idea. It uses a cassette tool which is easy to find, and always fits the rotor perfectly, unlike the 6 bolt that makes it difficult to keep the rotor from wobbling. The biggest problem is that only shimano makes it, and few hubs have the option. Mavic and DT make are the only ones that I know make the centerlock option on their hubs.

The funny thing is that's the one thing I like out of the new Shimano "innovations". It makes it really easy to get consistant torque on the rotor when installing it so the rotor goes on flat and true. You also don't have to worry about stripping rotor bolts. The only thing I don't like about it is Shi*No's riveted rotors. That's just a BAD idea in my opinion. However the fine folks at DT Swiss have made an adapter that will allow you to use a standard six bolt rotor on that hub.

Well, I didn't know about the adapters before.

I guess that makes the shimano stuff ok. I still don't like how they are trying to integrate everything though...

Neither do I (as you know), but you have to admit that is a good idea

On the budget end of the spectrum, the hayes sole are terrible whereas the deore are useable. "Strickley my opinion".
