Bit over a tenner a wheel for some NOS mid 90s mid range cantis seems an excellent price to me > http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=87343

Bought some last month when they were even cheaper, (about £7 a pair!!) Nice brakes with Quality alloy cartridge pads.

M565 is 95-96 LX, right before V-brakes. IMO worth buying for the cartridge pads on their own, it would take seconds to remove the 'Deore LX' lettering off the cartridge bodies and they'd be right at home in M737/M900 etc.

Still got stock, currently in their price drop sale which could see another potentially 20% knocked off them

Would like to know where they unearthed these!!

Bought 2 sets but finding the blocks/pads are rock hard is this normal or are they supposed to be normal rubber these feel like very hard plastic :?

Tony
