Well, it looks like the rear Shimano XT m775 caliper is leaking a bit, causing some pad contamination and killing the braking power.
A quick Google search reveals this is not uncommon, but what is the strategy here? First thought was to replace the caliper with an m785 XT caliper. Anybody know if you can do this; an m785 caliper with m775 levers? Looks like the hose fitting is different as well, I'm guessing I need a new brake hose. Will the hose fit the m775 levers or should I bite the bullet and buy the caliper, hose and lever?
I like the m775 brakes, but I might look at aftermarket brakes where the parts are more serviceable and interchangeable.
