    Best deal on a rear XT (M755 or 756s) disc brake?

    I can find the front from price point for $65, but can't see anything less than $99 for the rear. I really only want the front (but it has to be a rh lever), but am willing to buy both if the price is right so I can make a pair with levers the way I want.

    This is the old 4 piston version and not the new centre lock ones.

    Thanks

    $100 is pretty good

    Where did you see a rear BR-M755 (caliper, disc and lever) for $100?
    Please post a link here, at least after you buy the brake yourself.

    I think I was mistaken: the best deal for a rear M 755 I can now find is $119 from Performance, but this includes the hoses so it is pretty good. Alternatively you can get the M 756 without hoses for $110 from Excelsport.

    Might look at comparisonpricing.com.
