Ok, so I'm pretty much sick of my Maguras being finicky and a general PITA. i can also drop some weight by going with another setup while improving performance, so why not? The brakes are the silver Magura Louise FRs and while others seem to think they're awesome brakes, i'm less than impressed. i was stoked when i first got them, but the performance has been steadily decreasing. i'm considering Shimanos, Avids, Hopes or maybe Formulas. I couldn't afford the Formula Ones, so I'd have to go for the Megas. I'm thinking XTs from Shimano, M4s from Hope, and Codes or Juicy's from Avid. I know that Juicy 7s are proven and seem to have good overall performance, but do any of the other brakes stand above them?
