    Shimano XT Disc Brakes Dual Control M775 Compatability

    Hi all,

    I have a Mark 1 Scalpel and need to replace the front Shimano XT Disc Brake Dual Control (front break).

    The existing two units are:


    My question is, will a new lever be compatable with the old caliper? The Shimano web site states:

    "An increase in pad clearance at the calliper has enabled Shimano to use their proven Servo Wave technology in this hydraulic brake lever.". And I'm wondering if I'll need a new caliper also?

    The unit I'm considering is (which can only be purchaced as two levers only):

    Farnham Cycles | Shimano Deore XT ST-M775 XT Dual Control levers for disc brakes | Online Shop

    Or I could get (which is sold as 1 lever + caliper):

    Shimano XT Disc Brakes Dual Control M775 | Buy Online |

    Thanks for any advice!!

    I am actually in the same position and would appreciate any help and information about the compatibility of various Shimano models (levers/ calipers)
