both are used, the Juicy 7s definitely show it, the Guides not so much.

Avid Juicy 7 (front & rear) - $50
They work just fine, eventually they will need new pads but you can definitely still ride them as they sit.
I'm also throwing in one Juicy 3 complete front brake. I know the Juicy 3 worked before, not sure now since its been sitting for over 2 years.
Either way the parts are all interchangeable between the Juicy 3 and the Jyuicy 7s, so I just kept it as a parts backup at worst case.

Avid Guide R (front & rear) - $75
These are 2018s (I verified it with SRAM from the serial numbers) so they dont have any of the issues the older ones had with the lever piston sticking when left in the sun/heat.
Both front and rear work flawlessly, however on the front brake, the flange/eyelet that holds the pad retaining pin is broken (pic attached). This is only on the front brake, not the rear. And the front brake still works just fine (believe it or not). I was gonna jerry-rig a very thin piece of bailing wire to more securely hold the pin in, but i'm over it at this point and dont have the time to fahk with these things.
