Ive been running XT V-brakes with XT levers for years and I have always been happy with them. Last weekend I went for a ride with about 10 water crossings, some of them were pretty mossy. I found myself with almost no front brake for a while until they dried out.
This go me thinking of putting a disc on the front.
My fork is rated for a 210mm rotor.
I really like my XT levers.
How will a BB7 with a 200mm rotor, with an XT brake lever compare to my XT V-brakes?
I dont want to spend the $$$ on a new hub/wheel caliper and rotor if its not going to be a noticeable difference...
