I've just treated myself to a new set of SLX from Merlin (v cheap BTW) and probably should have asked these questions before hand...
1. I take it replacement pads are available without the cooling fins from other manufacturers and they still work well?
2. How do pads stay in contact with retracting pistons - ie: magnetic pistons or spring clip thingie? If the latter, does one need to retain the clip from original pads for future use?
3. Which bleed kit to buy? The ones I've seen seem to be just a squeezy bottle and a tube.
4. The brakes are going on a Handjob - will I need to shorten the hoses before fitting (I've bought preassembled bake set from Merlin).
Thanks in advance
