Just modernised my dbr axis tt, and now not sure if I want to stick with the Paul's brakes as initially planned. Whilst i liked the colour when i built it originally, I'm now feeling the xtr would be a more stealthy look, and while I'm at it, I'd change the outers to black.

Opinions?

The Paul`s,although nice,are a bit in your face and dont seem to suit the bike`s overall vibe.M970 all the way.

I kind of agree, hence the question. Prior to the rebuild today it was sporting 217 sunset rims which had some purple and tied in with the brakes. Now with added blackness, I'm thinking they need swapping out. I had a plan to fit avid ultimates to my rts, but they would also work here, though I think m970 will suit, and the rts can keep the ultimates. I think I'll swap the outers to black too.

Should I stick with the ti brake booster or go with a carbon m950?

I must admit, having removed the grips today, I think I'll pop on some lock ons, hopefully I have some in grey, or I'll need to swap.out the saddle too.
