    2012 XT vs Hope M4?

    My nickel came with Elixir 5's and I'm really not liking them at all. Poor stopping power, heavy lever pull, I don't like the lever shape and they don't center very well at all. Not really worried about weight. I've always wanted a set of hopes because of the construction and lever adjustment. I've heard a lot of good things about the new XT's and I like where they're going as far as heat control. So now I'm torn.

    So what is your question?

    The two brakes listed are different, IMO. Double vs quad piston. I prefer Hopes, and went for a M4/X2 combo. Works well.
