Once again i cannot for the life of me let a bargain slip by
This time it was a nice(see how i start to justify it so early on in the explanation
) XT m756 front disc brake. On CRC reduced from about £100 to £34
Not a dual control so quite a bargain i thought.
Seems i got the last or of the last as theyve taken down the advert
Did you see why they were cheap? Euro lever set up (front is left) they had a few rears too, I think I paid the same as you for the front and about £40 for the rear.
I did ,but not till it had arrived , I went to check and found theyd taken down the ad.Pretty quickly i thought
Not a problem though
im intending of selling the parts on and have already removed the hose and drained the system
This now gives me a brand spanking new XT caliper with left side[new] lever and also a brand spanking new saint caliper again with the left side lever[new]
It gets better
Last night i bought a pair of sram XX shifters for 10spd intending to upgrade to that speed and just replace the cassette and shifters (its 2x10) Today i learn i might have to change both my mechs also
Something about 'exact actuation'
I wasnt planning on doing an entire mech rebuild but its looking like i may have to, soI think ill be selling the XO stuff to help fund the XX bits
Next time i dump sram forever and stick to XTR
