    Searching for Hope...

    Need a new brake my the front of my bike. Currently have Grimeca System 12 that will be transfered to the rear. It has super sick modulation, but I find myself looking for more power. I already tried various brake pads, but the either fade modulation or hardly any improvement.
    So, I was looking at Hope Enduro, M4, or 6Ti. I need combination of power (one finger braking) and modulation. I ride technical NE trails that are dry, but require a lot of careful brake dosage. I do plan to do a lot of dh runs such as Attitash and Diablo. I weigh 150lbs + 45ish my bike. What brake would you recommend for the front?

    P.S. I would like to stay away from the bling side of 6Ti unless it is much better than the other 2.

    Thanks!

    get the M4's w/ 200mm rotor. I bought mine from speedgoat but there may be some other net dealers. 6ti's are probably pretty sick but I'm sticking with my m4s because I can't find any reason why my M4s aren't perfect.

    Hope made a believer out of me.
