Good joke, huh?

Anyway, I need new brakes. Are Fly brakes honestly that much better than cheaper ones, like Odyssey? And opinions on all these brakes and how they compare with others.

Demo Vulcan
éclat Unit
Fly Bikes Clasico
Odyssey Evo 2
Proper Magna

Any brakes are good if you can dial them in. I rode Evo II's and once they were dialed in, they are fucking amazing!

Woah. I might have my choice. But do the bearing in the Demos make them smoother? And does the 7075 of the Proper make them stiffer?

fly's for like 50. says they work with seatstay mounts to so you can just paint them if the color bothers you

My flys are simple. Nothing more to set up than any other set of brakes.

I like flys. Ultimately your goal is to stop, so any of your choices should be fine.

my mate had proper ones, they weren't hard to dial and they we're like sex. if your into brakes LOL but i hate them.!

I run the proper magnalite brake and its really good and powerful, plus clear pads are standard and they just work the best! I know eclat brakes are good too! and fly brakes are sweet too!

Honestly any of those could feel shit if you set em up wrong, but if you set them up right they could feel amazing!
