    Giant XTC 2 Upgrading brakes

    Well i got the xtc 2 last summer and so far im not a huge fan of the mx4. i have some money saved up and i was thinking about getting bb7s with speed dial 7 brake levers. The only hydro(price) i will be able to buy is the juicy 3 and i dont think they would be as good as the bb7s. I really want to get rid of the mx4s. I think this is the only real weakness in this bike.

    bb7s sound good to me. the only rec i have for you is to use organic pads, sure they don't last as long as other pads, but they are worth the grabbing power. a buddy of mine hates hydros (i don't really understand why, bad experience??) anyways he threw some bb7s on his sled. i hopped on his bike and tried em and i agree with him, they were strong as hell for mech's and he was able to get away with one finger braking.
