    New Alivio MT400 or older M505 ???

    Looking for a good budget brake system (lever, callipers, front and back).
    Can get for the same price either the new 2019 Alivio MT400 or the older Deore M505...

    What are your thoughts on what I should get?

    Cheers

    Get the MT400 the M505 are at least two generations older.
    Change begins by doing something different.

    Yeah, I guess that makes sense.
    I was leaning more towards the older 505 as my logic was that an older Deore may still be better than a newer Alivio...but as you say, that may no longer be the case.

    Cheers
