    Replacement pads for BR-M486 hydros?

    Hi everyone,

    I need to replace the pads in my Shimano BR-M486 hydro disc brakes (a non-series - came stock on a Giant I bought last year). I've searched but I'm having trouble finding replacement pads.

    According to a spec sheet I found on Shimano's website, the pad I need is the BO1S, but it doesn't seem to be available anywhere. Is that the pad I need, and if so, any guess on where I could order one?

    Thanks!

    I'm sure it is the same as LX, so M05 replacement is the match. I have those brakes, and while it is cheap and simple, it works just fine. And I'm on my 2nd set of Deore resin pads like this:

    But I bet your local bike shop carries them. Or even REI.
