I've got a set of SLX (M666) and XT (M785) brakes that I'll be installing some time over the next few days. It's kind of a long story why I've got the mixed set but I'm going to put the XT's up front and the SLX in the back. They came set up the other way though so I'll be switching hoses. I've ordered a bleed kit since I expect to introduce a little air into the lines when I switch hoses.
I've got a new set of wheel en route from Mike C at lacemine29. front hub is a Paul WHUB and rear is a Hope Pro II SS. I'll be bolting on SLX (RT66) 160mm rotors to these wheels.
The frame the brakes are going on is a Jones diamond with unicrown fork.
I'm posting to find out if anyone has tips/suggestions to make the installation and set up process go smoothly.
Thanks in advance for your replies.
