- Shimano XT brake pads
Split pins as used on LX? They are a very good solution. (Simple engineering is often the best solution). They have to be only “set” about 1-2mm, enough to prevent them falling out, and thereafter will spring into line when you remove them, and are very easy to re insert.
Re-use the same pin forever.Posted 8 years agocharliemortSubscriber
The SO has XT calipers on her bike – they are about 4 years old so I think they have changed. The pads have the hole for the pin at one end, not the middle.
The pin is an allen bolt that you screw in, secured by a mini R clip – or was, until the R clip was lost
All new pads I have seen come with a split pin – is this what I am meant to use as a replacement for the screw in pin? Or where would I find a mini R clip
