OK, bit of a niche one this but hopefully it will appeal to someone (I know there are a few mountain bikers out there....)

Merlin have some great deals on hayes mountain bike hydraulic brakes. These are likely to be unboxed surplus but they have some excellent deals - I've just order some HFX-9 brakes which are listed at £34.95 each (free delivery). This price is per brake, and the rotors aren't included, and also they don't have IS 160mm mounts at this price.

Best still they have 10% of all orders over £100 (most bike shops are doing this at the moment, chain reaction also are and also have free delivery, wiggle are doing 20%). With 10% of works out under £31.50 per brake, bargain for top quality hydraulics...

NB They also have a decent deal on Shimano XTR dual-control brakes for £135 (£150 - 10%).

#4
GENIUS!!

Was in the market for these brakes, so am somewhat chuffed that you found them at this STEAL of a price.

Voted hot, rep added!
#5
What a steal! The complete sets are even better at £109.95 for standard HFX9 and £139.95 for the Carbon HFX9 too!
#6
these are the MK1 tho not the MK2?
#7
would these be good on a hybrid (ridgeback bullit) ?:thumbsup:

I've brought a pair of XTR levers and shifters from Merlin in the past, they sent me mismatched items- the left and right were from different years and also different colours! Got on the phone, they couldn't apologise enough, new ones came in the post the next day, left me to send the original parcel back at my convenience. Good company, great customer service.

Hi looks like a great deal. Just wondered if anybody could help us out on a few questions for these.

How difficult are these to fit to your bike? Do they link up with the brake wires on your old brakes easily enough, what tools do you need to fit them, etc.

Cheers.

These brakes are hydraulic disc brakes and not mechanical disc brakes. They're therefore operated by brake fluid rather than cables. You also need the appropriate mounting options on both your wheels and your frame and forks. If you've no experience of fitting hydraulic disc brakes you're probably better off leaving it to the professionals. I've not actually done it myself but it shouldn't be too difficult with the right tools.

Not a problem. Always happy to help where I can.

I think this is an excellent buy, great brakes/performance. rotors are £25 from chain reaction cycles too (not exactly cheap).
fitting hydraulic brakes are fairly straight forward, its bleeding the brakes which is difficult.

The bleeding should be pretty straight forward with the right tools too but some may not feel confident of their mechanical skills. We all have a fear of the unknown to some extent.

Wow, staggered to see the responses to this - thought this one would dissappear without a trace. Not sure if they are Mk1s or not (I expect they will be surplus OEM stock, a lot of the stuff Merlin sells is but that shouldn't really put you off too much though).

Just as a general heads-up again, both Merlin & Chain Reaction Cycles have 10% off orders over £100 and free delivery at the moment, and Wiggle have 10% off £50/20% of £100 offers on until end of August. In the past I've generally found Merlin and CRC to be about the cheapest places for most parts, so if you are in the market for bike bits its worth a look at the moment...

As DJTiredBoy mentions the complete sets at under £100 after discount are probably even better value yet (thanks for the tips). Also, just to say I've had good customer service from Wiggle and CRC in the past (and pretty much every other bike shop outside Halfords I've used - I guess its because most people who work in bike shops and generally enthusiasts).

I second that for Chain Reaction Cycles. Great customer service and usually about the cheapest. Got a very good Kryptonite lock that was priced at £80 everywhere else and I paid £45. Bought various bits and bobs and they've been excellent all round.

Yeah, I needed new brakes, stem, bars, pedals, front mech and gear levers. After much deliberation and spotting the hayes brakes on Merlin I decided best bet is probably to split into two orders as close to £100 as I could at both Merlin and CRC.

One other tip - Easton EA30 riser handlebars with an Easton EA30 stem for £17.50 (before 10% discount)
http://www.merlincycles.co.uk/acatalog/Bars.html

Listing is a bit misleading as it says FSA bar then Easton on the info link but seems excellent price for an Easton bar/stem combo (albeit a budget one)...

Good deal - we need more MTB stuff!

Always try giving Noahs Ark in chalford a ring aswell, I recently got a hope pro 2 rear hub and was just about to order on CRC when I rang Noahs and they sold it me for £99 (was £120 on CRC, wiggle etc)
#21
You can get a pair off Wooly Hat Shop on Ebay for £90 including 8" rotors, so maybe not as cheap as it first looks ?

Stick to Hope M4's if you can :thumbsup:

For anyone thats interested in these, don't worry about bleeding them - they come pre-bled and ready to go so only need to re-bleed them if you have to shorten the hose or dismantle to pass hose through bosses or swingarm etc.

£108.93 inc P&P is the cheapest I can see?

Think these Hayes ones are gone.

Not sure of my Hayes Sole brakes, putting my Hope XC4 on the front, but my back ones knackered so still on the lookout
#24
Received mine this morning :)

Talk about service!

I ordered the rear 180mm ones. Came with a long hose, as stated.
The caliper is post mount, but supplied was a shimano post --> IS mount adapter.

For the price, i definitely am happy! Just need to nab a disc and i'm away :D

Oh, i think the brakes are V1's. they just have 'nine' written across the lever and the caliper, whereas i think the new ones have 'hayes nine' on both

DEFINITELY happy, much credit to OP!

Mine came too, pretty chuffed, exactly as described and the handlebar/stem combo is awesome for the money (£16 for Easton bar and stem can't be bad!). Ended up using wiggle for everything else (they have 180mm rotors for £11 each after 20% discount). Easier than I excpected to fit also!

NB Merlin are out of the Hayes HFX-9 single brakes but still have decent deal on the complete set (£99 del) and other Hayes/Shimano brakes so I won't expire it.

EDIT - Yay, my wiggle stuff's just arrived also!
