Hi everyone

I'm running a pair of Shimano 6401 brake calipers - same as these -
Image

I need to replace the brake blocks, just wondering whether anyone has experience of this, and more specifically, whether these blocks from wiggle will fit?
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/shimano-ultegra ... ke-blocks/

They look identical to me, but seeing as they are branded as Ultegra, and my calipers are pre-Ultegra (albeit only just) I wanted to double check before hitting 'buy'!

Cheers

My LBS tells me that these style blocks are still available as a Shimano spare.

sorry for butting into this post but are those cable adjuster barrels standard that can be used on any make/model pair?

Those blocks in the wiggle link should fit fine (they look like the originals), and I think most other types would be OK too - the ultegra calipers don't have a different design or need a special pad/holder.
