    I've got a friend who works at Hayes and he told me almost a year ago they were working on those. So I guess its out now, Hayes is going to sell a 4 piston version of the Stroker.

    It makes sense, people love Avid Codes. I teased him about how I put Codes, not Hayes on my DH bike and that's when he mentioned those.

    I have a friend that works over there and he said they are about 36grams lighter than the other popular 4 piston stopper. Also said public would see them at Sea Otter time frame.

    Holy overkill batman, I have my regular Stroker trails dual piston setup, and Damn they stop with some power. They already have excelent power and Modulation, with no need for more than One finger braking, two finger braking will get you into trouble. I can only imagine the stroker technology in a four piston setup.

    Are Gram levers on Ace calipers going to be the new Ultimate Codes?

    Maybe it is impressive for hayes. It seems like when any of the brake companies do something that's been the norm for years with the other companies everyone thinks that they somehow re-invented the wheel. The formula "The One" is another good example, or maguras "floating" rotors.

    Nothing on MTB brakes is original - its all been done on other vehicles before.

    I will be getting my set soon. I have been running Codes on my Socom all season and have had a serious "harmonic" shaking of the rear triangle. According to a source at Avid, they have had a few issues with Codes on both the Socom and a few V-10's as well. I love the power of the Codes, and hope to God these solve the issue with the rear braking.

    it will be good to get some feedback. the demo levers they had at crankworx felt weaksauce. with some luck, that was just because every squid on the planet walked by and gave 'em a squeeze.

    interesting that "harmonic" shaking isn't uncommon. i wonder if you change rotor size or shape (from another mfg) might change the harmonic it vibrates at and reduce the issue.

    hah! i had that with my glory, I always assumed I just wasn't setting it up right, but the entire rear end would start to vibrate really hard once the brake started humming!

    that might have come from a loose caliper and or rotor. if both are mounted securely you shouldnt have any vibration

    both were mounted securely. I've set up a disc brake once or twice in my time, everything was torqued correctly, greased or loctited where it should be, cleaned and recleaned, and well aligned. I agree with the last part, but I did, and they were, which is part of why I am now running strokers, and not codes :cupidarrow:

    Like syadasti said, bike disc brakes aren't anything without precedent in terms of basic design. The Ones are damn nice brakes, but are hardly any sort of earth shattering design. Not a single significant feature on them that hasn't been done before on a bike brake.
