Adding to the brake chat, I think brakes is arguably the worst thing shimano are making atm. I’m on my second warranty m9100 lever (not the trail ones) because of leaking, and I can just never get them perfect, need a bleed every 4/5 months.
I’m really tempted to get some maguras, as it seems like I’ve had quite good luck with them compared with some people in here. I’ve dealt with them on lots of beefy cargo bikes like GSDs and they seem super strong.
I would get hopes if they didn’t look so wrong on a XC bike
