to all you have been reading my other threads, i've given up with the hayes, and i think i will buy juicy 3's on CRC i have found them for £110 for the pair on 185 rotors.
and they are IS mount, so will these be ok on any IS mount forks?
the brakes i am using at the moment are 160 rotors, would it matter if i went this slightly bit bigger?

  • What sort of riding do you do?
  • Juicy 3's are nothing in comparisson to the HFX-9's you were looking at in terms of power. The brakes are POST mount calipers so you'll have to get a post or IS adaptor to fit a 185mm disc. The rear brake will in 99.99% of cases come with an IS mount adaptor to fit the rotor you require because 99.99% of frames use IS mounts for the rear caliper.

    a very sweeping statment there.

    they are fine with bigger rotors.

    IMO juicy 3's are way better than the hfx-9 i tried, plenty of power and i've only run 160mm so far, though i'm thinking of going to 180 for a bit more stopping power. Very good brakes and if you get the front one from CRC stating that it's IS mount then it will come with the IS mount adaptor (you might as well always order them IS mount because it doesn't cost any more and they give you the adaptor anyway, post mount is just the caliper). Hope that made sense

    He's already explained that they're IS mount brakes.
  • erm, well its for my brother, he is 13, 5'2'' and about 8 stone. he wants to be doing some 'serious' xcountry riding, jumping, and some 'slight' downhill sort of riding, if that makes sense?

    yea if i get the 2 of CRC they are both IS mount but only come with 185, i was just wondering if the 185 rotors would be ok if the forks he are using currently run on 160?

    160mm is MORE than enough for someone his age/size
