    Shimano shimless disc brake tips

    Getting fed of of endlessly tweaking my fussy older xtr disc brakes to avoid rub, thinking of changing the calipers. I notice the xt-m765 are shimless which looks much better & easier to set up- do all the other shimano ones use the shim system?

    For the current generation, I believe only XTR uses the direct IS mount. Everything else uses post mount calipers.

    The IS mount helps shave weight, but I'm pretty sure that there was a post mount XTR caliper too.

    I agree. Replace those calipers, they have a design defect (that Shimano will not admit to when you call them) that causes the crappy piston retraction when they get dirty. Number one, you shouldn't have that problem with XT, and number two, if you have any problems, they are easier to adjust.
