What's about Shimano Zee brakes ?
I need to change my brakes. I have now Avid Elixir R brakes in 180mm front and rear. I'm not happy with it, need to service them regularly....
I was ready to order a Shimano XT pair but saw the new Zee, with 4 pistons calipers... Seems to be pretty cool to ride in the Alps.
Does someone already try them ? What's about the real weight ? Claimed weight is at a little more than 300g. Not a lot more that the XT ?
I had similar problems with my Avid Juicy Ultimate Carbon brakes. They tend to drag on the rotor and was therefore constantly noisy.
I swapped out to Shimano Saint brakes (big brother of Zee). The difference is that the Saint's brake levers have tool-free adjustment knobs, but Mr Magura here makes upgrade kits for Zees.
Also you may want to check these Saints out (they are the previous generation Saints on sale for less than Zee)
