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??Posted 7 months agoPoopscoopSubscriber
Everyone on here will all be really opinionated about make/model of brakes mate! Lol
If money is a factor keep an eye on the for sale forum. Upgradeitus is endemic on here so there are always lots of brakes for sale generally. 😀
Personally… I would go for some SRAM Guides. That said, they may not mate up to your setup if your running Shimano triggers?
I’m no expert on that though (or much else…) and I’m sue you can make sram and Shimano play nicely if required! 😀
Lots of very, very knowledgeable guys on here that will also be able to offer their opinions mate.
Many people love the XT’s and hate the Guides… AND visa-versa! 😀Posted 7 months agoscc999Subscriber
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.
