- Which new disk brakes, help me i'm useless at decisions!
Am truly feed up of bleeding my 2007 avid juicy 3’s. What else is there thats good for xc/endur/playing at Afan etc and not really costly.
Are the SLX okay ?Posted 8 years ago
Yes but the deore m595s are cheaper and supposedly more powerful according to the bikeradar test.
I have had two sets on different bikes and they are excellent and stupidly reliable.Posted 8 years ago
How much? Formula Oro K24s are hard to argue with at the prices they are just now- strong, well controlled, reliable, easy to get parts for. A wee bit heavy is the only downside I’ve found. My XTs were OK but pretty undistinguished.Posted 8 years ago
hopefully less than £150 a set (F&R). I cannot find the K24 but have seen K18’s at 140 a set .Posted 8 years ago
The m595s will be well under that, so will the SlXs.
I have heard nothing but good about the formulas though.Posted 8 years ago
That’s complete prices remember- comes with rotors etc. Which of course you don’t need right now but it’s extra stuff and useful spares. Formula factory store are probably still the best place to go, at £150 for a set of K24s with the extra adjuster, a little less for the K18s which are still decent.
And that’s for a brake that performs better than SLX (can’t compare with new deore myself), and is fully servicable unlike Shimano.Posted 8 years ago
Pretty much all current offerings will be a massive improvement on juices.Posted 8 years ago
Slx got 30% off at Crc I thinkPosted 8 years ago
i got a pair of formula oro biancos for £130 from here, model above k24s. discs, rotors the lot bargain prices!!
Cheers for the advice, some k24 in white are on their way to me now!Posted 8 years ago
Just bought some SLXs from Merlin at a good price. Unfortunately they are being rather tardy at delivering them but the set I have on another bike are excellentPosted 8 years ago
