Hey Guys sorry for all the posts just trying to build a bike and im after some info on what model number they are ?

The pics from a dh bike back in 2003 maybe 2004 but its a world cup bike so was wondering if they could be 2005 or may have something deifferent about them.

They are M755, and were around from about 2000 to 2003, a very underrated brake, I want a set for my bike :D

Agree with the above - they are fantastic brakes. One of my mate swears by them and keeps swapping his sets onto his new bikes.

They don't seem to come up for sale very often these days though.

I remember those brakes well. Stopped very well. Never had to bleed me. In fact I still have a set, although rather heavily ridden, bent levers (tastefully done), contaminated rear pads, scratched res caps.... But they are cheap and only 1 owner. :)

I'm using my iPad right now and can't post pics. But they are used and I live in the states so...
