Our CoMo Speedster has the stock Avid Single Digit 7 v-brakes on it. I have a brand new set of Shimano XT v-brakes (this years model) laying in the garage from a MTB I had built up for only a short time before converting that bike to discs.
I'm getting ready to swap out all my cables, so I was thinking of switching over to the XT brakes. I was wondering if this would really be an upgrade, or if the consensus is that the Avids are better.
By the way, I also use Salsa carbon boosters on both brakes and have no problems with stopping power. I think I'm just getting tired of the retro charcoal gray look on the Avids and looking to do some experimentation!
