I have almost convinced myself that an Anthem X3 is the right choice (vs. the Anthem X2) for me. The ~$800 price delta has caused me to look at what each of the upgrades are worth to me. I plan to upgrade the shifters and rear der. after a while to XT (about $160), but I am unsure on the brakes.
Can anyone provide some feedback on the Shimano 486 brakes? I am sure they won't have the same feel/linearity/modulation as the higher end brakes - but do they work reasonably well? Easy to maintain and adjust? Other thoughts?
I have perfomed several searches and read the Giant and Brake Time forums, but I only seem to find info on the recalled 485 calipers.
Thanks in advance for your input - can't wait to buy my new bike!
