Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake

Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake. I Bought this Hayes Stroker RYDE hydraulic brake system to replace a +5 year old Hayes Nine rear Hydraulic Disc Brake.
hayes 9 disc brakes
The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake hose was a little long for my Large HARO Escape. The Hose bows out a little up front..

My buddy has the Hayes Stroker Trail but I opted for The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake was a direct bolt on replacement from AMAZON, and within my budget.

I removed the old Hayes HFX-9 rear disc brake

and bolted on the Hayes Stroker hydraulic brake.  The Hayes Stroker RYDE rear hydraulic brake works Great so far. No squeaking and good stopping power on the trail.
