What's the best cheap disc brake, and where's best to buy them?
Hard to see beyond Deore really, if your current rotors are compatible then merlin have brakes for £77Posted 3 years ago
Or extra £20 if you need rotors
Deores are £30 an end at On One at the moment

Perhaps not the best, but the price, wow!
Clarks Exo Skeletal – £20 a pair with discs on CRC.
They are a little wooden and the lever reach screw is a bit sticky-outy-scratch-your-other-bikeys but still, £20! And the hoses aren’t that durable, try and squeeze one into a cable slot thats too small and the outer starts to seperate.
They’ve sold all the UK setup ones but you can get left-front-right-rear and just swap the hoses over.Posted 3 years agoFunkyDuncMember
I’ll be paying them to shorten the hoses mind you…
There is no need to pay them it is so simple to do, and doesnt require any special tools.
There is a guide that has been linked to on here many a time that is simple and straight forward to follow.
I paid £69 for my Deores, a mate got them from CRC for £50 odd just a few weeks back when they had an extra 10% sale thingPosted 3 years agoJamieMember
I was tempting to get some Deores, but the M395s, which I think are Acera, that came on my new bike are surprisingly good. Short of being a bit more refined, I doubt I would get much of an improvement making the switch.
….although, full set for £55 is tempting.
Bottom line is, I think all ‘low end’ Shimano hydros are amazeballs.Posted 3 years ago
