    ultegra 6600 / 6700 brake question

    Does anyone know if the dark gray color ultegra 6700 brakes are the same color dark gray as the 6600 version? Building another bike up and am wondering if I can mix 6600 and 6700 components and have the colors match.

    Colors are slightly different. 6700 has more of a deeper/ dull color while 6600 tends to be a bit shinier. Remember 6700 has a different pull ratio so 6700 brakes need to be used with 6700 or 7900 shifters.

    Thanks for the info on color. For what its worth, I am running 6700 shifters with 6500 calipers on one bike with no issues. I think you just lose some of the "feel" by not matching the 6700 levers to 6700 brakes -- based on my experience with another bike running a matched set.
