Hmmm. All I can say is my xt's are '08 and I have zero complaints. Never a shudder, squeal or stutter and modulation on both front and rear is terrific.coolmoed said:ya, i think i am set on the shimano's. I'm a little scared of the 08's because of this thread though: http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=424553&highlight=2008+shimano+xt. So I'll probably get the m765 model.
Nonsense! I 'm sure that 80% of the BB7 users don't have both: good levers + compressionless uninterrupted housing and therefore don't have the same amount of modulation as with hydros. So the problem is not in the BB7.eatdrinkride said:Long story short BB7s are great for the money but can't touch good hydro's for modulation and control.
