    broken saint lever, what to replace with?

    Hey all,
    I just broke one of my saint levers and am looking for a replacement. I cant find any online, and was wondering about either older xt's or maybe the newer ones. Is there any difference between the older saint and xt levers? They seem to look the same. Also, would the newer servo wave xt's be a worthy upgrade? Thanks.

    BTW, I have M800's on there right now. I found some M765 levers for $70 and the new M775's are $180. Worth the extra for the new ones?

    Yes the old Saint and XT levers are identical except for color. And yes the new 775 levers are totally worth it. More pad clearance (less rubbing issues), 20% more power, better ergonomics. The only problem is that the new levers come with hoses that are not compatible with the old calipers, and you will need a bit of extra hose length (probably about 2 inches) to get to the attachment point on the new levers. When I switched my old XT brakes to the new levers, I ended up having to buy a new hose for the rear brake.
