 I have been very impressed with these brakes, especially for the price. I hear some complaints that they aren't powerful enough but I brake using one finger and have never had a problem so I'm not sure what's going on with other people's. PROS: cheap, great modulation, easy to find, reliable, tough (bent a lever pretty bad on a wreck and just bent it back. Still working two years later). CONS: Pain in the a** to bleed, limited adjustability, alignment can be finicky, some riders may look down their nose at you for not using Shimano or Hayes. Currently on AM bike with 200mm HS1 rotors and organic pads.

 For their price they're good, but they'd make for terrible brakes in an environment such as downhilling because the power just isn't there. For street riding, dirt jumping, and trails they should be fine. I've got friends who put them on all their bikes and they survive the day.

 The Avid juicy 3 is the best bang-for-buck brake ever, it has the braking power of the best brakes and the price of the not so great ones. so if you need brakes take a look at these and you will be impressed.

 Amazing brakes.,

Running the front one on my bike now. Excellent brakes.
Good hydraulic brakes and handy in times of need or just plain showing off.

 Had them on my first bike - good stopping power and easy to service. Best brakes for the price range.
