    Shimano Disc Brake M785

    Hi Folks

    Any opinion with the new Shimano XT disc brake M785? Our local shop is recommending Formula R1's to replace my elixir disc brakes which has had numerous issued to keep running drag free and quiet.

    Thank you.

    From what I've read everyone who uses the new Shimano M785 brakes loves them. However from what I've read there have been a few reliability issues with seals or something. Nevertheless the Shimano M785's appear to have excellent stopping,at least from the reviews that I've read.

    I am guessing that if he hasn't made the decision in almost 2 1/2 years, he isn't coming back t this thread to look.
    Just stick it in granny and start grinding.
