    New Deore XT 770 or Used XTR 551 Brakes?

    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

    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.
