Folks,

I bought these second hand a while back with the intention of them going on one of my builds... circumstances have changed along the way and they have pretty much sat in the box ever since I opened it! I fitted them to my bike last night though to make sure they worked ok....

Probably not going to need them any time soon so I'm going to move them on, they are the 2006-2008 style with the rounded levers, all in grey and black, very good condition minimal marking, all new style mountings for the frame with double booster type fitment, all bolts are in good shape and they seem to be smoothly operating apart from the left hand levers little red adjuster doesnt move? it probably could be free'd up with the correct size spanner (I do not have that - just an adjustable which may mangle it completely) steel braided goodridge type hoses and 2 little frame clamps so you can attach them to the existing cable guides without having to zip tie the hose to the top tube!

2 sets of pads included, red set and a standard black set

I paid £85 for them so would like to claw that back really! seen these fetch over £100 on ebay recently


Pics will follow later! 8)

NOW SOLD

Here are some pics of them fitted to my current bike so you can get an idea how they sit:

They are being taken off tonight and put away again until sold :-)
