    So you get £10 worth of adaptors and pay £3.40 less? Crazy :)

    I got the cheap £4 adaptors, however they appear to have run out of the rear one :(

    Buy a different brand?

  4. rich says:

    If they haven’t got the non-OEM one, I’ll get one from ChainReaction.

    You normally get two sets of pads with non OE Shimano brakes. Sintered and Organinc. If you only get sintered with the OE = Bargain. If they are Organic it’ll cost you.

  6. rich says:

    It’s sintered with the OEM ones IIRC.

    However I’ve been running sintered front and organic rear in the XTs for ages with no problems.

  7. Tom says:

    Organic are fine until you show them mud. Well around here anyway.

    You dont have northern grit to ride though :(

    My XT organics are lasting pretty well :)
