    New question here. Brake Lever/ Caliper compatability

    Are the older XT levers BL M756 compatible with the 08 XT and 07 XTR calipers?

    But why? It's the new 08 XT brake levers that have the servo-wave cam. if anything, use older calipers with the new levers!

    Anyone know what type of steel braided hose I can use with XT calipers and levers?

    Am I correct to assume that hose size is usually standard and I will be able to just use the current fittings and so all i need is a new hose?

    I have had a look at my XT765s and noticed that for the post mount, the front and rear is the same?

    Cheers. Sorry Kauia for hijacking this thread.
