  1. 1. Which combination of gears and brakes?

    • Saint Dual shifters with XTR calipers and LX derailleurs
    • SRAM X-7 with Avid Juicy 5 brakes
    • SRAM X-7 and get new levers to go with the XTR?

Just got a new bike with SRAM X-7 and Shimano Deore brakes (BR-485), on my old bike I have Saint dual shifters with XTR calipers and LX derailleurs.

I do really like this setup.


I've never tried SRAM before and I don't trust the deore brakes (I'm slightly heavier than most). I also have a pair of Avid Juicy 5s that I can use.


Which combination of brakes do you think I should go for?
