    levers to go with XTR discs

    Looking at buying a second hand bike with integrated shifting/braking XTR levers & XTR discs. I'd like to switch to SRAM shifters (prefer to twist)- can anyone recommend similar quality brake levers that work well with the 04 XTR discs?

    The "old" Deore XT, BL-M756 or BL-M755, works well and are reasonable light.

    Dunno about mixing between brands. Manufacturers will tell you - no way - but somebody might have tried it and gotten away with it... Me, I would not bother, just use the XT levers...
