    Shimano XT's on Ebay?

    Hello,

    I have recently gotten in mountain biking and picked myself up a Trek Wahoo. I know it is just a starter bike but im enjoying it for now. The only thing I dont like about the bike is its lack of braking power(Tektro Mechanical Disc). I have been doing a lot of reading on this sight and it looks like I want to upgrade to shimano XT's or the SLX.

    I did find this listing on ebay and am wondering if it looks good or stay away. The only thing I see is that it does not have finned pads and they use a coder pin which I thought is supposed to be a screw on the XT's

    Shimano Deore XT BL M775 BR M775 Hydraulic Disc Brakeset Rotor Bike 800 1400 New | eBay

    Any advice is greatly appreciated as I am still learning.

    These are the old models, before finned pads. Looks legit.
