I would be grateful for any advice as to decent brake blocks for my Raleigh Dynatech.

The local bike shop pointed some out that were £50 - I just can't do it, but £15 - £20ish seems OK.

Thanks

The brakes are Shimano 600 - the bike dates from 1992.

Thanks

Can't you just fit these instead of finding genuine Shimano stuff ?......

I don't know if Discobrakes have what you want but the are certainly cheap and my experience of their pads has been good.

The person who recommended them to me didn't rate their pad holders.
