Been searching through posts, didn't find anything conclusive. I've got a Trek 2010 Fuel EX 9 with stock brakes - Avid Elixir R. They've been a total pain in the a$$ for the last 2 years. I get the 'turkey warble' in the back, constant rub in the back, and the front tends to lose pressure, and require many pumps occasionally to get lever to normal position. LBS has worked on it, but issues return shortly. I'm thinking either XT or XTR brakes, but the shared mount with the SRAM shifters would make that tough. I've heard the newer Elixirs might be better, but still not up there with XT/XTR. Anyone find a mount to allow SRAM X9 shifters to work with a XT/XTR brakes, or had better luck with newer Elixir brakes?
