* BRAKES SOLD; ROTORS STILL AVAILABLE*

Hi All

I have a like new set of MT500 brakes from 2019, that have maybe done 200 dry miles - pads are like new. front & rear, but rear will need an olive and a bleed as I had to remove it from internal routing.

£25 plus £3 postage, and can get a pic for anyone interested.

Also a set of 180/160 centrelock rotors that were basically bed in - no real wear. £10+ £3 posted.

Brilliant budget brakes - only removed due to upgrade.

These might be just the job for mini-SP....

What’s the reach like to the levers? Do you think they’d be OK for kids hands?

Also, the discs, are the solid steel or mounted on an alloy carrier?

Thanks

SP

I've got little hands, and they can be wound far too close to the bars for me, I suspect they'll be fine for smaller hands.

This is at rest with the adjuster all the way in; (where your finger sits to the bar is about 35mm).

This isn't 'full squeeeze' just enough to grip the disc (finger to bar is 20mm, prob 15mm at full squeeze)

The discs are the basic shimano centre lock rotors, so are on a small alloy carrier.

Spot on with photos, thanks!
