High end hydraulic mountain bike brakes for £30 more than a cheap pair!

If you are about to vote cold because your £50 Argos/Supermarket bike has disc brakes then stop, if you saw Ferrari brakes at your local quick fit for only 35% more than standard brakes for your stolen Vauhall Nova it would be a good deal, and so is this.

Complete set (front and rear) Hayes Stroker Carbon disc brakes

Close-Pack Construction (CPC) results in zero wasted space. Every element of this radial master cylinder is optimized for strength, light weight, and compact size. A hard coat anodized 6061-T6 aluminum piston in the master cylinder holds tight tolerances throughout the life of the brake. An integrated reservoir and bladder handle fluid expansion 33% better than the flagship Hayes Mag brake. This design reduces lever pump and ensures consistent feel by compensating for pad wear.

The perfect lever design disappears in your hand. An internal lever team used bench-marking, Hayes test program feedback, CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine) scanning, and finite element analysis: All to make a lever that you wont even notice.

The aluminum adjuster dial uses a spring detent for reach adjustment with positive clicks. Oversized metal bushings surround the dial yielding smooth actuation and durability.

The Strokers insulated caliper pistons control fluid temperature during heavy braking, so every braking stroke engages the caliper smoothly and consistently, eliminating lever fluctuation and providing a reliable feel. Hayes largest brake pads to date result in optimal heat management and deliver loads of power. Adjustable hose routing to set the ideal hose exit angles on any bike.

Choice of V6, V7 and V8 rotors, V6 model will fit both IS and Post mount, V7 and V8 come IS only but will fit post mount with the appropriate bracket.

Supplied ready bled with all fixings and rotors. 750mm front hose, 1350mm rear hose, which may be a little short for some bikes but at our crazy price you can easily fit longer hoses.

Hot from me for some decent brakes at good price - you'll normally pay that for just the front/rear.

These are only available in the V7 (7"/180mm) size.

no modulation, hope mono m4 ftw!

This is a fantastic deal if you are into your bikes.
As above poster says, can easily pay this for a single.

Wish I had a spare few quid to bling up my bike with these.

Not for everyone obviously as pointless in putting them on your Halfords Apollo but good kit for good bikes at a (very) good price. H&R left. Nice find.

I've not seen reviews complaining about this?

I have seen issues with fitting, but to be honest, this is a bike shop job for most of us...

For those not into their brakes, modulation is the degree of braking, all hydro disk brakes are said to have less modulation than standard brakes, IE they're either not braking or braking REALLY hard with no shades of grey.

But I've never really found it an issue with mine.

Mountain bikers who take things so seriously act so autistic and ****** retentive, it's not even funny.

I've never understood the point of super hi-tech disk brakes on a bike. The old fashioned block brakes on mine are powerful enough to send me flying over the handlebars (front) or lock up and skid (rear), even without applying much pressure. And they never, ever overheat to the extent of getting brake fade - and I've braked all the way down from Edinburgh Castle on a hot day!

Rim brakes are fine until you go off road and start getting mush in there. Disc brakes are far lees vulnerable to this problem which is one of the reasons why they are particularly suited to mountain bikes.

I have a recumbent bike with mechanical disc brakes and they are far superior to any rim brakes that I have ever come across.

Voted hot. :thumbsup:

Rim brakes are fine for the standard user. A proper and well set up set of V-brakes are typically more powerful than the cheap and nasty mechanical discs you find on a Halfords bike. However, if you want to do any proper off road mountain biking then a proper set of hydraulic discs are far superior to any rim or mechanical disc set up.

I think that you have maybe just pinpointed the deficiencies in your current braking system then.:whistling:

To an extent I agree with you, I had a set of cane creek brakes on my mtb and they were ace, but a fairly unique design and recognised as a step up from standard V's.

I swapped to discs when during the autumn and spring months the mud got so bad I'd wear through a set of pads in less than a single ride. Annoying cos you'd have to call it quits before you're ready and find the nearest road. More often a bit dangrous as you'd normally notice them failling about 1/2 down a nice steep / technical section.

But all in, I'd agree, that they're not needed for the commute to work, but then again neithers full suspension and that always seems a popular choice too....
