Avid Juicy 3's For Trials

7 posts in this topic

Hi All,

Just wondered whether you could use Avid Juicy 3's for Trials, or are they no good really?

Thanks and ATB

James

I've seen lots of people with them on their bikes and some of the inspired's come with them as standard so i dont see why not.

Juicy 3's for "Trials"...... no way!

Their reservoir system isn't too clever for trials, given the angles that are experienced during riding trials, there is a potential for air to get in the system very easily. This is a common problem that the Boardman MTB's had, which resulted in reduced braking power and a horrible spongey feel. They're cheap for a reason.

in my experience all AVID Juicys are shit! i had some juicy 5's on a downhiller which were alright. but the bleed method is crap, the brakes are pretty crap, bleed kit is like £40-£50 for a good one.

i would not recommend them lol.

i had bb5's that were SO much stronger than every juicy set ive had. and i tried everything to make them work properly.

bloody useless. tried them on mtb, DH/FR and trials and theyre shit on everything in my opinion haha.

hate them i hate them i HATE them, ;)

i would not bother mate.

Juicy's seem to be the worst for maintanence and performance

. Save your money that bit extra and get some hopes or a bb7 ;-)
