    avid is the cheapest power you can get, highly recommended.

    umm..no... my magura marta has twice the actaul lock up power of the avid i had with a 7" rotor, xtr cables, and avid ultimate lever...but what hte marta does not have is modulation, the mech brake has modulation in coming out of its poo.

    just get a Magura Gustav M...

    I just put one on the rear with a 6" rotor and it has awesome locking power!!! Plus mine is like a 2001 model so I can't imagine how well the new ones work.
