    Shimano deals at Ribble - SLX M675 cranks $99 shipped

    ribblecycles.co.uk has a 10% code for Shimano (CASH10) and free shipping to the US for $99+ orders.

    And after months and months of showing "not in stock" on some of their best priced items, it looks like they finally got some inventory.

    M675 cranks, Double or Triple, w/ BB, for $99. If you prefer XT, they have those for $136.

    Several other good deals on Shimano stuff too: SLX brakes $120/pair. XT brakes $150/pair. XTR pedals $85.

    Shimano deals at Ribble - SLX M675 cranks $99 shipped

    XT brakes at $150/pair is an absolute steal. Best I can find on Ribble is $197. http://www.ribblecycles.co.uk/sp/mtb...am323000000000

    Got a link to your $150?

    You need to tweak the currency and destination settings at the top of the page and it should show $165 as the price. Then after entering CASH10 in your basket, they should be $148.50.

    I agree this is a total steal. Even includes the finned pads. The one detail I don't know is the I-Spec version (A or B) but that's not a deal breaker.

    For clarity, changing the destination to US (or Canada . . . anything outside Euro group) will remove the VAT tax. That is the difference between $197 and $165.

    Good point on the normal/moto set up. But assuming you'll shorten the housing, then it doesn't matter, you just swap the levers during the shortening (and given the generous length of the Shimano stock housing, its almost certain you will be shortening).

    There are some really over the top deals to be had here. Chains and cassettes are stupid cheap, so this is a great opportunity just to stock up on consumables. Or how about a full SLX gruppo for $370 (cranks, brakes, f/r ders, shifters, rotors). Makes me want to build yet another bike just to take advantage of the deals!

    Spend money to save money: the oldest trick in the marketing handbook!

    This has me wishing my X0 Trails sucked a little more...the XTs are better, but I don't *need* new brakes.

    A Reverb Stealth on the other hand...

    The groupsets are crazy cheap too. SLX group including brakes at $421?

    BTW Inertia, the coupon code doesn't work for group sets.

    Good to note. That was the one item I didn't test in my basket. Still, you can build the group one piece at a time and its nearly the same price. I wouldn't want those cheapo rotors anyway.

    I added all the individual SLX parts (f/r der, shifters, cranks, chain, cassette, brakes, but NO rotors) and the total after 10% discount was $367 shipped.

    For anyone riding an older 9-sp drivetrain, without 36T cog or clutch rear der, I would make this purchase in an instant.

    You could add the upgraded rotors for $50 too, though I don't know if the RT76 is the ice tech version everyone loves so much. Great deal.

    Edit: I've never heard of this site before. Anybody use it and got any ideas on what kind of shipping time to the US we are talking about?

    I've used them twice. Shipping times were quick (less than 10 days from order to in my hands). Only surprise was some bar tape that was different than the item description; when I inquired, they just credited me the price.

    RT76 are pretty good rotors, with an alloy spider. At $22 after the coupon code, they're good value. But they aren't Ice Tech. Unfortunately, Ribble doesn't have any Ice Tech rotors. They've got some great deals, but their inventory is sort of inconsistent (Very little XTR level stuff. No suspension forks. Etc).

    @SS hack..


    Shimano XT M785 Brake Levers and Post Mount Calipers (set),


    @Gouda Cheez..

    Not sure, but I'm installing Jagwire brake cables when I install the brakes so no worries with oem cable length.

    If they are moto style can't you just switch the cable housings to the opposite levers to return to US style? I am really tempted to order XT brakes with these prices.

    I don't know why everyone gets hung up on this. The Shimano housings are 1000mm and 1700mm long (front/rear respectively). I ride XXL bikes and I still need to shorten them by at least 100mm to avoid a massive wad of housing at the bars. Hence, I assume that nearly everyone will need to shorten the housings.

    Which leads to my second point . . . when you shorten the hoses, if you didn't like the originally shipped configuration, just re-attach the hose to the opposite lever.

    So the only case that should concern moto/normal is if you refuse to shorten your hoses. Or I suppose another case would be ordering two left (or two right) levers, which is conceivable with someone like ChainReaction that inventories every option. But in this case at Ribble, you're getting a pair of brakes, which guarantees one left and one right lever.

    Mine shipped this morning. These are the cheapest prices you'll get including used. No brainer for me and I didn't really need them. Slx brakes for 120 is dirt cheap. The pads alone are 30 a pair. The hosing is about the same for the price of pads and housing you got a whole set of brakes... Wow. The xt cassette is super cheap too

    Question on the brakes: Do the SLX come with pads?

    Both the XT and SLX pics have no pads installed...maybe it's just because they aren't the finned pads that I'm used to seeing. XT item description says "contains sintered pads", Deore says resin pads, but SLX description says nothing on pads. Surely they come with pads...which kind?

    The SLX are shown in their photo with un-finned pads. So they must be either the G01S (resin on steel) or G01A (resin on aluminum) or G03S (metal/sintered on steel). My guess is G01S since those are the cheapest.

    Oddly, the photo on the XT now shows unfinned pads also. I swear the stock photo two days ago was finned. Given the sintered notation, I assume these are the G03S pads in the XT.

    At these prices, which pad they use doesn't really influence the value much. Although it might make someone lean toward XT versus SLX.

    I ordered a set of XT brakes. The picture shows finned pads and the notes indicate "The kit also contains sintered pads" doesn't say finned, but the price is still fantastic.

    I ordered and forgot to add the code in. Emailed back to them and they refunded the difference. So far so good, just need to wait for the brakes to arrive. I am in Canada, so it will be interesting to see what charges I get hit with.

    Thanks for the heads up on this site for the great deals.

    I can imagine these guys scratching their heads wondering where this sudden influx of orders from across the pond are coming from! haha

    P.S. I could swear they initially had a pic with finned pads for the XT as well.

    Jenson just matched these prices including the 10 off. SLX crankset show as $91.56 when part of an order over $100.
    They also adjusted the pricing on an order from two weeks ago. Brakes are regular.

    Shimano deals at Ribble - SLX M675 cranks $99 shipped

    I have ordered from China, Taiwan, etc... and was never charged import fees. Packages just showed up at my door.

    Just checked the tracking number for my order. Ribble shipped it Priority Mail Express International. Number pulls up on the USPS website.

    In case you are unable to tell, I am excited.

    Unlikely. Every order I've received from Ribble has been via USPS and has been free of duty. Among my 10+ international orders, the one occasion that I've been charged duty was an order from Wiggle (UK) that was shipped via DHL and had a vague "sporting goods" description associated with it.

    This is for U.S. destination. If you're in Canada, YMMV.

    I didn't register either. Got a shipment confirmation, but no tracking. Oh well, guess it'll get here when it gets here.

    I've got a package coming from Merlin and that tracking info is horrible, at best. So its a waiting game.

    Ribble automatically creates an account when you order. Log in with your email and password is your zip code. At least that worked for me. Under your account view your order. There is a number there. Can't remember what they call it. Copy and paste to the usps tracking site.
