not sure which contributes but my riding buddy says that after upgrading his whole group from DA9 to DA10 the biggest difference is in the brakes. good luck finding someone who has a mix - might be hard :-(fuch said:shimano claims (backed up by some cycling mags) that their new DA brakes are 30% stronger than the previous models. does anyone know if this is due to the brakes themselves, or is it the leverage at the levers, or both?
i am considering the new DA brakes (need more stopping power) but do not want to change my levers as well. its only worthwhile if they will work as well on 105 sti's. any advice? thanks in advance - fooch
