Can You Mix Shimano SLX & XTR Brakes? | #AskGMBNTech

Published on January 2nd 2023


On this week's episode of Ask, Anna is in the studio responding to the questions you've left in the comments. Questions like, Can I use a Sram chain on a Shimano drivetrain? Can I strip the paint off of an alloy frame for a different look? Am I bending my derailleurs, or simply the hangers? And will I get more power and a better feel from mixing an XTR lever with an SLX calliper, or vice versa? ⏱ Timestamps ⏱ 00:00 - Intro 00:29 - Mixing Brake Levers & Callipers 4:33 - Chain Compatibility 6:02 - Pedal Extenders 8:00 - Stripping A Frame 9:10 - Bending Mechs or Hangers?
