    SRAM vs Formula

    I'm looking at getting either the SRAM, Formula B4, or Formula B4XC disc brakes for a XC/Endurance racing rig. They all appear to be light, but am curious as to their function and durability. Any comments?

    well

    SRAM = Shimano XT = Grimeca System 8. The only difference is that XT use mineral oil that won't strip your paint. I heard many weight "geeky" people use Formulas. Search weight w. forum.
