Wanted: Shimano Front Brake.

Postby Velocipedestrian on Fri 10/Feb/17 10:30pm

Right hand, hydraulic, prefer the older pre - servo wave style to match the feel of the rear.
Cheap.

Got a spare deore unit taking up space?

BR-M535.
It is a rear, just mounted on a fork to hold it during bleeding.

I'll check what I have lying around. I know I have some levers in that style and a complete new XT brake of the same vintage in a box somewhere.

I also have a few sets of vesrah pads in that caliper form :eh:

I've changed to new XT/zee stuff on all my bikes so have lots of spares of that gen.

Righty, had a quick rummage, in that pad/gen style I have

New XT front brake with left hand lever
a set of new silver levers
an lx set of brakes front and rear (I have a feeling the rear caliper is leaky but im not 100% sure)
an xt set of brakes front and rear (rear caliper leaky)
a saint set of brakes front and rear (rear caliper leaky)
a rear saint (caliper leaky)
2x vesrah pads
2x olive sets

all the levers are the silver body ones

as you can see I have been through a number of rear calipers :blink:

I've also got a bunch of hoses to suit

let me know how much/little of it you are interested in. Its all just taking up room :paranoid:

Wow.
Most of it I guess, the l/h front xt and enough xt and Saint completes to put together 1 r/h front and 2 l/h rear brakes.
Pads
Olives

So the whole box if that's easier.
Cheers
