    Saint 810-XT755 pads

    Anyone got new 810 Saints AND old XT 755 4-pots? Reckon pads are interchangable? Which, I believe, also makes interchangable with hope mono4 & grimeca 8. Why - cheaper, more available, bigger range, etc.

    Well this is highly unexpected seeing as the new brakes are bottom loading but yes the pads appear to be the same shape. Wohoo no more worrying about supplies for my XT 4 pots

    In another thread some people posted that they filed of the lips of XT 4-pot pads and they seemed to work fine in the new Saint.

    I think filing or grinding the lips of the old XT 4 pistons would work. I friend of mine said the new Saint M810 pads seem thicker, but even so filed XT's should still work..
    I havent been able to find any M810 brake pads out yet...
