Do the new m4's come in black? Not techs, just m4's. I saw stealth ones but they are race or tech etc.

They do the M4 stealth evo, that doesn't have 'tech' in the name but are race. These are all Black.

Looks to have the race lever rather than the tech.

Mini mono levers. They got phased out and replaced by Tech levers back in 2009 or so.

They used them on Trials brakes up to last year though.

Were they yours? Why was i tempted by them for no apparent reason?

Haha no but I would have some for the wife's bike. A pink Tech X2 went for 55 last week on the bay but sadly it was a single but had the flowery rotor with it.

Yeah they are linked above. Dont like the design.

Of the lever? I've got tech m4 which are brilliant but aren't the best fit with my shimano shifters. The race would be better i think

Dont like the look of the master cylinders, calipers are pretty much the same thing.

There's a shop that I can't remember the name of that will sell you Hope brakes in any colour you like. I do remember that they were charging something like £450 a set :shock: .

That might be where you seen the older ones in black...

Cor thats extortionate!
Only be worth it if they kept the logos somehow.

Author:  Fudd [ Fri Dec 14, 2012 9:33 pm ]
Post subject: 

They were special order from the factory so all logos intact. I think if you were to call the factory about a custom order they would direct you to that shop. I'll have a rummage and try to find a link.....
