    Shimano XT with Rotors and adapters from Blue Sky

    my guess is the kit you got did not include adpaters or rotors. Much better deal from Blue Sky.

    Additionally, after it took tree fort a week to ship out my order after it was placed (for items that they had in stock as well), I would never buy from them again.

    They only have a front brake. And sorry to hear about your experience with Tree Fort.

    The Blue Sky deal is better. I've at least got a set of front brakes on the way and will probably order the rears from Performance which are currently at $129.99 w/ out rotors and adapter since even their most basic shipping option still has the brakes to me in about 2 days.

    No warranty on parts from Blue Sky though. Gotta read the fine print boys.

    At the bottom of their page, bluesky states, "If any items fail to meet your expectations, you have up to 365-days to make a return."

    That's a return, not a warranty. They're 90% OEM, meaning if it breaks, you're S.O.L. Shimano won't warranty them, and the return policy isn't going to cover you sending back used parts.

    I'm not too worried about it. I'm going for best price which includes Ebay or used which means I'm assuming the risk of having to repair them myself if necessary and which I can do.

    I'm upgrading from "Avid Elixir Warble Garbler Stuck-Piston 5's" that don't have a warranty either. I think I'm coming out ahead in this move.

    I plan to order the $145 XT M785 brake/rotor/adapter kit from bluesky and I'm sure it will be covered under warranty
    From the BlueSky Help/FAQ page.

    Every Item Blue Sky Cycling carries is covered by a warranty from the manufacture.
    Since each manufacturer has a different warranty procedure please contact our Customer Service Department at 800-585-4137 or e-mail us at service@blueskycycling.com

    xt brakes

    I got mine from merlin cycles for about $260 CAD (front+rear) with rotors... I don't see that particular deal anymore, but this one looks OK. $230 CAD without rotors...

    $270 on the bike and out the door at LBS. I buy lots of stuff from them over the years and they match prices. No rotors, already had them. Rode the brakes today first time. Awesome modulation, improved stopping power over previous generation XT.

    Dude they are the worst! They make so much noise and the stopping power is not there!
