    XTR brakes, what do I need to make them work

    'm contemplating XTR disks, I don't have an XTR wheelset and have a few questions

    First off, are they worth the $$$?

    Secondly, I read that the rotors do not fit non-shimano hubs, does this mean I can purchase a regular rotor and "adapt" them to it?

    Will I need any additional pieces of hardware to make this conversion?

    Can I use regular Levers with this or do I have to go with XTRs?

    Thanks

    Centerlock rotors only fit Centerlock hubs (other companies use centerlock too). You can adapter standard centerlock hubs to use 6 bolt IS but not the other way around.

    They won't be XTR rotors, but Shimano sells 6 bolt IS rotors as well.

    You can use any Shimano hydraulic lever.

    what do you have now?
    unless you're a weight weenie or have lots of $ they are prob. overkill, the new 08 xt is a better deal
    you should use shimano rotors and levers, they dont have to be xtr or centerlock, the caliper dont care
