Shimano LX M585 OE Hydraulic Disc Brake Set: £88.00
Shimano LX M585 OE Hydraulic Disc Brake Set with 203mm front and 160mm rear adaptors: £84.60
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?
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.
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.
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 :)
