I'm a fan of XT brakes-been converting all my bikes over to them as I can afford to. I have on hand a set of 775 (last gen) brakes and a set of 785's (current gen), one of which will go on my fat bike for cold weather use. I know some shimano brakes have issues working in cold-leaky seals, slow piston and lever return and so on. So my question is, would I have a better chance for good cold weather service from one generation over the other? That is, has Shimano addressed the cold weather issues with the 785 generation, or are they both equally prone to trouble?
