    Shortage of rear XT M785 brake ?

    I bought the front M785 to replace a crappy Hayes Stroker Ryde on my bike and I love it so much. I'm willing to buy the rear one as well but everywhere I've looked, there is a shortage (I wanted a silver BR-M785). Is that because I'm not looking well enough or is there a real shortage of them ?

    I don't know where you are in the world but chain reaction cycles have them in silver with black hoses if you're near the UK. They'll post international of course, but it'll take longer obviously...

    Wiggle seem to have them as well, but I don't know what colour the hoses are.

    Edit. Scrap that wiggle's out of stock for the silver rear... Sorry

    I think there certainly was a shortage because I wanted the silver ones, but ended up buying the black ones because I needed them quickly.

    If you look at the list at CRC, there is no silver RH rear brake. On Wiggle, it's on backorder.

    I contacted TBS where I bought the front brake, they told they hope to receive this week but when I check, it's still not there.

    There are some place selling black caliper version without problems.

    Ahh, sorry about that didn't see you wanted a rear RH not a LH.
