    shimano brake options......

    does anyone know if '08 saint calipers are reversible (able to be used as front or rear)?
    it appears '09's are.

    how about a comparison between '08 saint and '08 xt brakes. is there really much difference in power between the two?

    also any input on using '09 xt levers with '08 saint calipers?

    thanks.....................

    no difference between the calipers. front and back are the same.
    08 saint and 08 xt are the same caliper. just painted different clours.
    yes, all shimano levers are interchangable with all shimano calipers

    Yep, what he said. I have mixed and matched everything from Deore to Saint levers and calipers with no issues. And front/rear is only determined by the adapter you bolt to the caliper.
