    Hope tech M4 or Formula RX

    I'm currently running on tech M4's on my bike. i'm happy with it so far and had zero problems with it. just wondering, would switching to Formula RX brakesets be an upgrade? is it better than the M4's? or just stick with the M4's?

    Why switch if there are no problems with what you have? I've been a Hope user with no complaints since my first set of mini's in 2000 or so.

    That would be a downgrade. If you want to upgrade your brakes, put in EBC red pads. Big huge difference.

    Isn't that all you need? IMO upgrading just to upgrade is pretty dumb. I usually upgrade to replace some component that is either broken or I'm not happy with.

    Not even a chance that is an upgrade. I LOVE my Tech M4s.

    M4 and rx is like comparing xtrr with slx it's a different line. It would have been a tougher choice if you compare m4 with the one.
