    SLX M665 Calipers with SM-RT79 Rotors?

    Will the SLX calipers work with the "long-arm" SM-RT79 rotors?

    I have Deore M555 calipers on my bike and the rotor "arms" interfere with the caliper body.

    I'm wondering if the SLX M665 calipers would work or if I can only run the XT M775 calipers.

    Before anyone says change the rotors.... I already have a set that work with the Deore calipers but I'd like to use this as an opportunity to upgrade into a nicer brake setup.

    Thanks in advance!

    I;ve only just seen your post so maybe you already have the answer. If not, all Shimano calipers and discs are interchangeable provided you have the same diameter disc.

    The trouble with having an open mind is that people will insist on trying to put things in it.
