As far as fork sturdiness goes, you're right and that would be one of upgrader on DJ. Now, as far as mega goes, I saw it was won on hardtail-singlespeed. Because (and track dropouts on most of bikes) of that I thought about building 3rd wheel (rear one) ... more »

Hi, I'm searching for a DJ frame. It can be slopestyle frame or freeride frame (hardtail) too. It must accept suspension fork. Can be used/repainted/without decals, but it mustn't be broken or repaired. I don't care about dropouts, steer tube type, BB ... more »

Added a product review for Shimano XT Disc Brake M785 11/5/2013 6:28 AM

Perfect middle


The Good: Great braking power, fantastic look, minimal noise, impossible to overheat, reach adjust can be adjusted without tool.

The Bad: Price of ice tech rotors and vented pads is very high.


When I first time looked at this brake I taught: ''There's no difference between this and SLX brakes.'' And that isn't far from truth. Only difference is in final look and in addition of so called ''Free stroke'' mechanism. Some people think this is completely useless, but I was able to see, just like my friends that it has some difference. Main reason I had this brake? Whole bike had XT group so I thought if whole bike is XT group, I will go for it. Is it worth additional money for difference in 20 grams per brake? It's all up to you. I would personally go for it because one group above SLX can mean difference in quality, performance and lasting after few years of usage. Also, if you go trough a lots of descends and really long ones, buy this. I used 180mm front and 160mm rear Ice tech rotors and pads and even when I tried to overheat them, but I was far from it. Plus, Free stroke actually helps in those situations. If you go for XTR, you won't have all this luxury.
