anything XT 7xx series, or m900 if you're a little more flush.

DX M650 cantis are every bit as good as the XT M734's and you should be able to pick up a full set with all the hardware for about £20...XTR M900 your looking at more like £45 at least!

I have dx m650's on a couple of bikes and a set of xt m737's on another. The M737's are great and look nice too.

Diacompe 987s are an excellent brake, and much ignored.
