If your Codes don't perform better than XT's then something is wrong. You might need to get new pads, clean and sand the rotors then bed them in following Sram's bed in procedures (there's a PDF online).

Eh, they are gone now. They had the shifter and post lever integrated and I was not keeping the sram drivetrain or the rockshox post. Let it all go on my 18.

yeah i think its just preference. i like sram for drivetrains but their brakes just dont feel right to me. i try not to use my brakes anyways so i feel like srams might be good if youre always kind of leaning on the lever

I agree but the Codes should definitely have more power than 2 piston XT's.

I would agree here too especially as speed is the key

I expected them to be, but they felt as vague and weak as the Guides I had on my 2017 5010. Pad and rotor material make as much a difference in how a brake feels and works as does the brake itself. To me, the Icetechs with organic pads have a great feel for the fast XC type/light downhill stuff I ride. Not all or nothing, but will dig in without instant lock up on a steep fast braking corner. I did not get this with the factory Codes on my HTLT. I ride with the guy I sold my 18 to, so next time I may try to get a spin on his bike to see if it was just a matter of the pads and rotors bedding in. May just be difference in lever feel too.

cheers

have run my spare tube / levers and co2 strapped to the suspension pivot bracket for ever with no issues , do the same on my Bronson again with zero issues , use a one up bike strap , but any ski strap will do just as well

super deluxe coil is great , tracks the ground very well , but still lively enough on jump trails , very good on steep tech trails with heavy braking points
