Got the new 2012 XT brakes fitted on the Mojo HD, have been looking forward to these! HUGE increase in braking power compared to the old SLX brakes (of a couple of years ago), the 2012 XT brakes definitely require a gentle one finger touch else your face will be scraping along the trail before you know it. Dropped down from a 180mm rotor to 160mm on the front. 160mm on the rear.
Just to add to the excitement I’m taking the opportunity to retrain braking fingers, swapping from the middle finger – the most common used for braking in mountain unicycling – to the index finger which offers a better control/grip deal on for MTB braking. Had a couple of unexpected grabs earlier on but nothing disastrous. A few rides in and it’s starting to feel natural.
All up… SLICK!
