Hello... I just bought a Cross Frame and am wondering which is the better brake system. I know the XTR Line is better but it's a generation older. I can get them both for about the same price. Which would you choose and why?
Thanks... from a clueless roadie used to dura-ace:twitchy:

new XT stuff is amazing, I see more and more people who normally would go with XTR go with XT because the difference is so small... I suppose. It seems to me like the Sram Rival of mountain.

thanks.. Was going to buy the Deore brakes but I got the newest version of the XTR for $40 off ebay. Killer deal.
