I did write repeatedly about the MT5 being a "budget" option. I think this is the reality of bike parts in 2022. Keep in mind that $189 is MSRP, and you may find them cheaper. I don't have the exact numbers in front of me, but I think this price is in line (maybe slightly higher) than Code R and SLX. You can save about $20 if you go for the base MT5. As far as bang-for-your-buck 4-piston brakes go, I think Shimano Zee is probably the brake to beat. The new SRAM DB8 is priced very competitively, but that's an unknown entity to me.
