    Re: What is XTR M988-B?

    New Ispec clamp design. If you use ispec you must have the new design.
    Just bought M785-B's same thing. I don't ispec so doesnt matter in that case.
    All the '14's should be -B

    Any change to hydraulics? Any change to weight? Why are they $50 more?

    Looks like they did away with the plate under the stroke adjust screw... I wonder if that indicates a redesign so that the free-stroke works better now?
