- Pads for RS505 calipers
Do I have any option other than OEM at £20/pair?
I’m peeved enough about having to replace them for my warrantied caliper (as well as buy a bloody bleed kit, due to the caliper doing what Shimano calipers seem to want to do whatever the application), but when I found the price I got proper grumpy.
Nobody like Uberbike seems to do aftermarket.Posted 1 year ago
Tredz has the finned ones at £15.99 – Just seen Sigma Sports have them for £15 (wish I’d seen that a couple of days ago when I ordered my pair… especially as they’re just down the road from me).
I did see some un-finned ones when I was having a hunt. Possibly Clarkes ones?
Ah – Evans (if you want to risk it…) with unfinned for £9.99. Will probably go with that next time (which seems to be sooner than most other pads I’ve ever used…
All the best,

I have RS805 on the gravel bike and tried out Shimano’s metal sintered, finned pads (L04C) which cost me £35 for two sets. Absolutely bloody terrible and the scream like mad in anything other than bone-dry conditions. I tried everything I could to make them not squeal, but in the end, went back to Shimano’s organic compound instead, which are absolutely fine. Expensive mistake, that.
On a completely unrelated note, I have two sets of L04C pads, nearly unusued that I’d be happy to sell… 😉Posted 1 year ago
