I'm after a front mechanical disc caliper to try on my GT RTS. Cheaper the better so doesnt have to be new or shiny but some life left in the pads would be good.

Ideally Shimano or Avid, dont really want Hayes after reading the reviews.

Cheers

Stu

I've got a tektro one you can have for... say £7 posted. Comes as part of a pair which are set up for 160 rotors front and rear.

I think they're "H0" or "0H"... that's the only markings I can see. Pics are here http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... t=#1730266 Open to offers price wise of course ;-)

Thanks for the reply Jim. They're Tektro IO's, have you used them? Any good?

LOL... Spot the numpty!!! I haven't used them so couldn't comment on how good they are. They came on a frame and forks that I stripped for parts. They move freely and seem to have plenty of meat on the pads... Make me an offer ;-) They seem to get reasonable reviews here http://www.mtbr.com/cat/brakes/disc-brake-system/tektro/io-and-iox/prd_417342_1507crx.aspx
