XTR.. loving mine
Give me your recommendations for new brakes
Just bought a set of SLX's good value from Merlin and they do the job, but i wished I had spent the extra and got another set of Hope Techs. Which I have on my other bike.
Why. The Hope's just feel better. As in Modulation...not entirely sure what that means, but the Hope's have definitively got it, and I miss it when it's not there. and also the solidity of the levers, the SLX's are flimsy by comparison.
I agree with the previous comments about the Shimano's being designed by computer and the Hope's by a rider.
Agree re the SLXs, i demoed a bike with them the other day and nearly crashed on the carpark scoot-about as the slx are sooooo on or off. mind bogglingly strong, but with very very little inbetween, they feel as good as my Formula RX1 at full yank but controlling the power was really tricky with the slx. i like the lever and style but wouldnt buy over Hopes or Formulas, or even my old Juicys.
