I think I want to upgrade my front mech to XT but I dunno if ill notice the difference enough. Your experiences please?
Also went for a ride today with a couple of really intense and technical downhills and I just wasn't convinced my brakes were pulling enough. Had a few "**** me I could've done with slowing down a bit more there", subsequent accident would've been 20ft drop down the side of a rooty/tree ridden slope and it nearly happened at one point because I didn't slow down enough and overshot on some roots.
Could I put some different rotors/pads in there, would that make much of a difference?
