- Shimano SLX or XT brakes
The bite adjust screw thing then, screw that in and out on XT during a bleed and you can get more bubbles out. Does little else !
Ah, Ok that makes more sense! Although it’s a badly kept secret that the SLX does have the bite point adjust mechanism (or free stroke as Shimano call it) in the lever, but Shimano just put a blanking screw in the hole to disable it on the SLX, to make a point of differentiation with the XT. Some clever folks over on MTBR here have removed the blank and put a normal M4 screw back in to activate it on SLX and Zee levers. Can’t be bothered myself, because as you say, does bu@@er all on my XTs anyway!Posted 4 years agomindmap3Member
My experience of the German shops has been really good – I have had my stuff within three days or so. That’s faster than Howies can get stuff to me from Wales!
The only issue that I have had is being tight and selecting DPD instead of DHL as on option on Bike Discount. They decided to leave my parcel outside the front door in the p*ssing rain rather than take to the post office of leave with a neighbour like DHL do.Posted 4 years ago
