    Post mount hydraulic brakes obsolete?

    I'm looking to find an older titanium Vaya, a "forever" bike for me, and outfit it with an XT group set, including hydraulic XT brakes. On the road side, it looks like post-mount hydros are nearly obsolete. Do you see the the same trend affecting mountain components, with post-mount hydros becoming extinct? A "forever" bike ain't forever if you can't get replacement calipers to fit it in five years, right?

    All my brakes seem to be post mount? Saints, SLX, Avid Guides. All post mount.

    Edit. Just read 'on the road side'. I've never looked at road bike discs so I've no idea!!
