So, my brakes are in need of some work so I figure I’d take the opportunity to optimize a bit based on what I have on hand.
Calipers are currently ZEE M640 on the back, XT M785 on the front. 200mm rotors, RSD Wildcat, rider who knows what he’s doing but avoids life-altering risk taking (well except for dangercat rock faces)
Levers are XT M785.
Here’s what I’m thinkin’:
Swap calipers front back. New 4-piston caliper will come soonish, $$dependant.
I’ve heard rumors of good things happening when you pair up a non-servo-wave lever with 4-piston calipers so I’m planning on hooking up a set of XTR M-985 levers that are just chillin’ in my bins right now.
I also have a Deore M-596 complete rear brake, a ZEE lever/XTR caliper combo and an XTR caliper kicking around that could go in the mix.
Anyone have experience/knowledge they want to share about my plan?
