Need some assistance: I haven't been able to find a contact us on the Shimano site.
All below in relation to Mountain Bikes.
Some questions around the Shimano range:
So I understand it (the range) as Deore SLX, Deore XT then Saint, New Saint and XTR.
If we use/reference Brakes:
Shimano Deore M595 is a lower end unit compared to Shimano SLX M666 not just because of Deore and SLX label, but also because of the M595 compared to M666 labelling,
Now the question: the word Deore, it is being included in a M595 brake set, the price actually implies the Deore is a lower range than the SLX M666. But then there is the Deore XT which just confuses everything, so what impact does the Deore actually have
And then there is the Saint and new Saint designations.
I currently have (2012):
Shimano XT M785 Disc Brake | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
Shimano XT/Saint RT86 Ice-Tech 6-Bolt Disc Rotor | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
Shimano Shimano XTR M985 Disc Brake Pads | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com
I'm looking for the (2013) replacements for a new bike I'm building, the above is joined with:
SHIMANO XT M780 10 SPEED TRIGGER SHIFTER - I-SPEC
If I can't find a "liked" updated model then I will move the above onto the new bike and replace the above components with: Shimano SLX M666 Disc Brake Set on the older bike.
I'm looking at putting together a XT group set for my new Pyga, based on the OneTen29'r.
Off topic... I'm also looking for a BB, (BB92 Press Fit), haven't found a Press fit BB92,
