So it appears that I have fully worn out my rear brake lever on my mtb, on rough trails the lever 'fiips' forward and I can't reach it anymore, it seems to pop out of a retaining pocket.
The bike has Hayes hydraulic disc brakes now, all they say on them is Hayes so I'm not sure what model, they are probably from ~2004 or so.
I currently have Bomber 66 20mm front fork which the manual lists that it has:
"Disk brake mount: XC International Standard for 6" disk (fitting the special adapter supplied by the brake system manufacturer you can install the
I have an 8" disk on the front I'm pretty sure, as it is larger than the rear one.
The frame is a Santa Cruz Bullitt, with again a hayes disc brake adapter for the rear, with I believe a 6" rotor.
These pics show the bike a little goofy as I recently upgraded the whole drivetrain to 10-spd shadow plus shimano deore xt gear (with the clutch ) and I took these pics during the process, and they are the most recent pics I have.
My big question is, what brakes can I buy that will simply bolt on with no modifications? I would like to try something other than Hayes this time around as finding pads for these is always a hassle.
I had my eyes on these -
Shimano M675 SLX Disc Brake | Shimano | Brand | www.PricePoint.com
Will they work with my current caliper adapters and rotors and simply drop right onto my bike?
If not, would these?
