    Looks like they tried to deliver my stuff today, but I wasn't home to sign! Will pick up on the way home. That's freaky fast!

    Got my parts today whoaa fast. The brakes are not dinner pads, ohhh well still a good deal. All the parts are one most include the instruction sheet. There are no extra olives in the brake bag though does include the clamp for resizing. Pretty happy with the prices the speed of shipping and what I got. Would have much preferred icetech

    Bit of an exaggeration. Add two pair of finned pads from Art's and you'll have two full brakes and 4 sets of pads for $195 total. Feel free to share with the group if you can beat that.

    The big take-away from this for me: buy the SLX brakes since you're not getting finned pads either way (although you do get sintered pads w/ the XT). As good as the current generation of Shimano discs are, the $60/brake price on SLX might be the best price/performance brake value in MTB history.

    I got an email from Ribble that says this 10% Shimano promotion ends on April 8th. Remember they are 8 hours ahead of west coast US, so don't wait until Tuesday night to order!

    Just got my order of an SLX drivetrain. Ordered Mar. 31 and got it in 6 business days to PA. Not too bad...all of my stuff looks like never installed OEM. Great deal, very happy.

    FYI. My XT brakes are backwards (right hand front) and the XT shadow rear der did not require the extra mounting link as described on the website.

    Now to research switching the brake lines...might need to get that Shimano bleed kit.

    Same here with my XT brakes. Guess that is how they run them across the pond. Shortened my lines and switched sides in half hour. Got new olives from lbs and reused the fitting. Lost some fluid but brakes still feel good. Going to bleed them this weekend.

    Thanks for that. I am still waiting too. I never got an order confirm e-mail. Wrote a note to them to see if the order had shipped and they never replied. Can't seem to log in to the website either. But my CC has been hit.

    for swapping and shortening slx brakes lines. they do not come with hose clamp or olive + inserts. buy olive+inserts that fit the hose type: SM-BH90-SB; you can not reuse inserts. for the hose clamp, i'm going to split and drill a wood block for a diy hose clamp.

    I only purchased olives and reused the inserts. No issues. Hose clamp would make it nice but not needed at all. I was able to push the insert by hand half way and then tapped with a small hammer while holding the line. Man up and muster your kung fu grip.

    That's really strange as I just got a notification slip and had to go pick mine up at the post office (like everyone else here). Someone must have signed for it, maybe you can check with USPS to see who?

    Take the time and go to local post office with the tracking number. Probably postman still has it sitting in t he truck.
