    Hayes hfx 9 hydraulic front and rear disk brake without rotors - used but in great condition.

    The all-new HFX-9 combines the power of fully-hydraulic disc brakes with exceptional value. The HFX-9 features the durable components and quality engineering for which Hayes is well-known, including a rugged, compact aluminum body and lever blade, and the new 'G2' caliper

    Spec

    *
    Anti- Rotation Reach adjustment
    *
    2- peice master cylinder design for easy removal
    *
    Sintered metallic all weather pad compound

    **Please Note: If the hose needs to be shortened the following method should be used;

    Step 1; Cut the hose with good quality cable cutters
    Step 2; Feed a ring spanner over the cut hose to undo the shroud nut, ALWAYS use a ring spanner for this operation
    Step 3; Re-attach the hose and tighten the shroud nut with an open end spanner, do not over-tighten

    Yes they should fit in your bike, provided they come with the appropriate adapter to mount on your sized rotor.

    But apart from that, if you are not getting an absolute steal, I would suggest that you pass on the Hayes 9, and look at Shimano LX- probably cheaper and a whole LOT better.

    I'd hold out for something better. Go see if there are any Deore or LX hydraulic brakesets on ebay.

    I will have to request more clarification regarding your question...

    Based on what I could make out, are you asking if you can use the gear shifter cable to run the brake? If so, then you are mistaken... its a hydraulic disk brake system... does not use cables.

    (But I have a strong feeling I sounded like a total retard)
