Does anyone have experience using XTR brakes with Ultegra brake levers? I have a pair laying around but not sure if they will work well. Do they have enough stopping power? I want to get rid of the V-brakes for more mud clearance. Any suggestions??

A buddy of mine used them with some Dura Ace levers and he was really disappointed with the performance. Since the arms were so lo-profile, he couldn't get any decent power.

sounds like a bad set up. Low profile canti's give the most power if you dial them in right
