Have you had the chance to use it much yet? What do you reckon to the Deore brakes? I was thinking about a set to replace my M4's.
No not had a chance to use them in anger yet, have been laid up with flu since fitting them, so these are first impressions from a couple of short rides, they're not really bedded in yet.
I've only got experience of five sets of brakes:
Hope M4 Tech Evos now on my Giant
Shimano M596 Deore just fitted to the Mongoose
Shimano M445 which were on my Giant Anthem until recently
Avid Elexir 3's on my son's Cannondale
Shimano M575 - yeuch!
They are listed in my order of preference - best at the top. The Deore's are really nice brakes for the £90 they cost me with a nice progressive feel but they don't have the adjustability and sheer power and bite of the Hope's. I feel safer with the Hopes, I think they could stop me under any circumstance. I don't get this with the Deore's but then the Hope's are over twice the price. I know you are not satisfied with your older M4's but I have no idea whether the Deore's would be an upgrade for you. More likely XT's would be.
