    SHIMANO DEORE BL BR-M535 HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKE - Good for 29er

    Hi guys,
    Just got an email from Cambria, and they have what seems like an amazing deal ($29.95) on the Shimano Deore hydraulic brake. I have the Hayes MX-4 OEM on my Tucson, which work fine, but I did ride a bike with hydraulics in nasty muddy conditions, and liked them alot. The reviews sound great, but I have not found a weight on them. I ride XC and not terribly concerned about weight, but don't want to over spec the need if I don't have to. Thanks for your input!

    I ran the LX version for over a year and they were top shelf brakes, I am actually about to switch from Juicy 7's to XT brakes, simply a better product in my opinion. If you're currently on cable brakes I say pull the trigger.

    There is one version of the deore hydraulics that is supposed to be atrocious, can't remember which though.

    Also would depend how expensive replacement pads are. Some are really hard to find.
