Agreed with so much written here I couldn't respond to everybody's posts. Buddy had horrible howling with the resin only rotors/sintered pads. Swapped em to SLX jobbers and the problem was eliminated with a kick up in brake power to boot. Shimano really does IMO offer the best tactile feel at the shifter. Having gone from a Zee to XT unit the feel is just night and day. The Zee was good, but damn does the XT just feel positive in pick up and release. Keeping on the Shimano trip, I'd take one of their cheaper hubs over an unknown rebranded jobber simply due to parts availability. most any shop can order up a freehub body if/when necessary, and most of their hubs fit their 29" specific freehub bodies, boosting durability. I am curious to see what the Sunrace drivetrain offerings provide, but def have no reason to replace yet nor do I want to be a guinea pig. Pricing seems on point and finish looks well thought out. But in my area there's really no need for a 50t low gear.
