Dear fellow riders, I have a dilemma and would appreciate your opinion very much.
I just concluded that one of my 2008 Formula The One brakes is broken (the rear one) and my dilemma is as follows: My budget is limited and I can either buy a 2011 formula The One FR to replace the broken one and keep the other brake that is working or I can afford to buy a new pair of 2012 Shimano XT brakes for the same cost.
The advantage if I go for the formula brakes is that they are awesome brakes, but the problem is that I donít know how long the other (2008) Formula The One brake will last and off course that I have two different (even though similar brakes). Formula will not continue to manufacture The One Fr so I will not be able to upgrade later unless I go for the even more expensive Formula The One 2012. Off course thereís also the option to just buy one XT brake.
Does it matter much to have different brakes?
What would you do if you were in my shoes?
Thank you very much for your support
