Yes, I have actually

As I mentioned, I'm currently running some NOS XT2 cantis. And, while much better than the XTR V's I was using, I'm still not entirely happy with the XTs. As a result, I've been looking into the Spooky's (aluminum or carbon) or a set of Paul's (NeoRetro up-front and Touring in the back).

With regards to the Spooky's, I've read that some users need to bend either the brake pad post or the actual fork brake bosses to eliminate squealing, vibrations, etc. Bending doesn't sound like a great option. The Paul's, on the other hand, have this adjustability without any bending. Just curious if you encountered this.

Ride Hard,
