 I've not had disc brakes on a bike before, hydralic or mechanical, these came on the bike I purchased. The ease of bringing the bike to a stop with these brakes is phenominal. The modulation at high speed is awesome. I giggle like a school girl every time I feather the levers. Thanks Hayes for making my ride better!

 got a rear brake for my specialized P2 with a 160mm rotor, a lot of stopping power and easy to adjust. Its a lot simpler than the stroker but if you don't need the on board control setting of the lever then this is a good buy.

 great stopping power for freeride love them. Feel lush in your hand, easy to install. I feel you dont really need the adjustment from the hayes stroker trail its a nice feature but you can adjust these with an allen key which is all good

 I bought these used and brought them back to killer operating condition with just some cleaning and a good bleed job. That brings me to the downside, the bleed kit is hoky. Always take the pads out and be ready for cleaning up a mess. The tube on your filler bottle will blow off. Saved my life several times at Snowshoe.

 I am starting to like this brake set more then I was when I first got them I put new pads in and got them bleed they work better then my 7's right now the only bad part to them is the crap pads that come stock change them out and the brakes work sweet

 Low stopping power so i run it only as a back brake on my DH race bike. Fantastic modulation though which makes it ideal as a back brake in my book since i wont really use it to bring me to a full stop. I run a fairly wooden Mag 20 on the front for stopping power. The brake seems reasonable tough as well, ive hit a few trees to no effect.

 these brakes are horrible after 2 weeks of having them the back brake locked up and has this horible grinding sound and you cant adjust the brake to get the brake dialed in. onky buy the brake if you can get them 90% off somewhere

 These are the brakes on my stock Kona Stinky Six. They have great stopping power, but the levers have so much play in them (they move like a centimetre) that I'm thinking of getting new brakes. Great brakes if you don't mind the lever play.

 PROS: Durable, Stops you, Inexpensive, Quality.

CONS: Rotor bent after 2 months of hucking, levers have scratches =(. Make noise when braking, not a big deal. Front brake when very mud tends to not work perfectly.

OVERALL: I would recommend these to a friend. If you are an xc rider, downhiller, 4x, dj, etc. These are nice solid brakes, that don't brake your piggy bank. I would recommend high quality rotors, and upgrading the levers to titanium levers, just so they are bombproof.

 great brake iv had hope before they just cost to much to repair if anything get broke. these are fairly cheap to buy and repair. Also cant wait till the hayes prime pros come out next month going to get my self a pair!! Look really good and can spec everything to your needs on the lever.

 Pretty good brakes and nice modulations, but once they start to burn up, there power pretty much disappears. Awesome brakes for people who want to get a taste of what hydro's can do

 Cheap and strong brakes. Like any hydraulic brakes, they're a bit of a pain to set up, but once they are, these are some impressive brakes. The difference between these and even the best mech. discs is HUGE! These rock.

 i find that hayes makes a good section of brakes but, the hayes stroker rydes are not one of the best but if you dont want to upgrade your brakes, and they come stock on your bike than just keep them their not that bad.

 Great brake for the price, I have used it on 2 DH builds and always performs well. Never seems to fade. Great for anything from all mountain to full downhill. Work great on my new intense uzzi.

 The ergonomics are great and give a good confident feeling while riding. Maintenance is easy but definitely hard to find pads for at your LBS. But the bottom line is that it just works...

 For the money they are top notch, proven design, great quality and easy to maintain. May not be the lightest or strongest but they get the job done!

 very control sensative, i likeSmile there is a screw to adjust that will bring in how far the lever can come in. very good brake, should come with a longer cable next time

 I would recommend the Hayes Stroker Ryde for freeriders and downhillers on a budget, but NOT for dirt\street because of the specific of work described.

 Good cheap simple brakes! can't get mine centred on the disce but I think its because the Commencal MAXMAX's weird brake mounts aren't too accurate.

Hayes Stroker Ryde (MSRP $205) — The Ryde is the lowest priced Stroker model, but it's anything but entry-level. The essential Stroker ingredients are all there - the radial master cylinder, the increased fluid volume, the ergonomic lever design, and the proven power and modulation. At a total system weight of 407g (including 6" rotor and hardware), the Ryde packs higher performance at a lower price and weight than many high-end brakes.
