    Bonking ... not feelin' well XTR/XT compatibility

    Hello all... I just got a great deal on hydraulic XTR dual contols through the magic of eBay. Just levers, no rear der, no caliper. Now, my question is: are the '02 XT 4-piston calipers compatible with the dual controls, or am I going to have to new XTR or '04 XT calipers as well Shimano said that the 03 XT levers are compatible with XTR calipers, but I don't know if that translates to XTR levers being compatible with 03 XT calipers. All your help would be appreciated.
    phuck it!

    p.s. I NEED a Pugsley

    Iirc...

    the installation piece of paper for Shimano DC levers (AKA toilet paper) mentions the compatible levers and calipers.

    I'm not 100% sure what was what, but if you get stuck find one of these bits of paper and see what it says.

    But I think you might be in the market for some new calipers somehow...

    All shimano hydraulic levers and calipers are fully compatible with each other. You can use XT, Deore, or XTR levers with the 4 piston calipers.
