First time post on the MTB forum so be gentle!

I’m building up a super commuter and will be using hydraulic discs, can anyone tell me if anyone out there is making a (predominantly) polished silver calliper and lever? Looks like the current MTB fashion is for black and or red

Thanks

The current XTR is very silver, as is XT though its isn't as shiny.

Look for a second hand set of Hope Mini's.
One of the best brake's out there and can be found for a relatively low price.

Edit: And can be made 100% silver (i've got a spare set of silver bore caps if you need) with silver bore caps, levers, hose, bolts and reservoir cap.
