Showing Questions 1-2 of 2
Q: Which sides do the front and rear levers mount on?
A: These brakes mount in reverse to a motorcycle. The front is on your left and the rear is on your right. If installed in reverse you pull it off together and you turn it all around.
Q: I have a set of Hayes Nine brakes currently mounted on my bike that I will replace. Can I use the same mounting hardware for the Prime or will I need a new mounting kit. Also, are the brake pads included? Thanks - Brian
A: The Hayes Nine brakes are no longer in production and would use a different standard. When purchasing a new set of brakes the appropriate hardware would also be needed. As for the pads, yes, all brakes come with pads.
They say that brakes are there to let you go faster, and these are a perfect (or prime) example. These brakes have been serving well for eight months so far. They have very even and predictable modulation but more than enough power to break both wheels loose on command. I had set them up initially to be used with either double or single finger braking, but quickly moved them in as one finer is all that is needed. The reach and throw adjustments are very nice features that let one dial in the fit, and balance the feel of the front and rear brake. They are a little heavy for my XC rig but will soon be moving them over to a more AM oriented build. Great brakes that look nice, feel nice, and act nice.
Smooth. Smooth. Smooth. Ive been running these for about 3 weeks and they have great modulation and lever adjustability. I was in between these and the Shimano XT's and I'm very happy with my choice. Not to mention they just look awesome. Oh and they don't make a sound which kind of threw me off at first but after a couple minutes I fell in love.
