Topic - Anyone any good with hydraulic disk brakes?

Run_Ross_Run - on 06 Jan 2013
Hi,

I have a 2007 Giant Xtc3.5 same as http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/bikes/mountain/product/review-giant-xtc-35-disc-9124

The brakes have been cr*p since i got it (seizing). Anyway for this and other reasons i now want to replace the levers.

I'm ok with basic bike maintenance but the 'hydraulic' part concerns me.

What do i need to purchase. Levers and calipers? Separate, or can i buy them together?

Do i need to be looking for Shimano or something else?

I'm not wanting to spent too much and the brakes don't need to be top of the range as i don't do too much offroading.

Any advice welcome (apart from slating the bike itself) ;)

Thanks,

Darren.
