I hope you guys can help me out here. I purchased an Outcast SS 29er that came with stock aluminum Tektro v-brakes (mid-range for sure). They are nice and do the job but a friend of mine gave me a set of older (I think around 2004) Shimano XT Deore v-brakes. Would it be worth it to swap out the stock brakes to the Shimanos or should I just stay with the Tektros? Braking power with the Tektros seem or appear to be a little weak and I was curious if the XT Deores would be a little better overall.
Oh, one last thing...the Tektros are dead silent, no break howling at all. I've heard that is not always the case with the Shimanos.
Thanks for your input.
