Only been riding a year now and love it. I have been upgrading my Saracen mantra and now have a pretty decent spec hardtail. Next on the list are the brakes, it currently has Shimano br-m355 brakes but would like more stopping power as I’m getting much faster on the red routes…any recommendations that don’t cost the earth??
Shimano Deore upwards are great – run a 180 rotor on the front and unless you are a very big lad you’ll be fine for power.
I’ve got SLX on my curret bikem that’s what it came with. I’ve run Deore on other bike and o/h has deore too.
Heard lots of good things about SRAM Guides too, but I’m sticking with Shimano for now.
...and we need you to agree to it before continuing on to our website.
