Both Front and Rear brakes available at £36 each.

Hydraulic disc brakes usually atleast £50 each end of the bike for entry level stoppers. These look a bargain, not hayes newest models but from a good brand and prooven.

Fantastic brakes, running them at the moment myself.

Little bit wooden compared to others but super-strong and very reliable

Heat added

im running these as well, had mine now a few years and their rock solid.. worth every penny at this price.. mine where about 5 times this when i had them

Does the kit include the connecting hose too? At the moment I have Tektro Aquila mechanical disc brakes on my recumbent but I'm not sure if the Hayes would be a suitable replacement.
Great price - voted HOT! :thumbsup:

I'd imagine that as they're "oem" (original equipment) they should be complete, already bled up and ready to go

There should be a permanent thread on here for BIKE ONLY bargains :thumbsup:

Looking for decent 29er wheels just now but don't seem to have £500 lying around to finance them :-(


Incidentally - this should maybe be posted as a bargain on it's own...


16" and 18" Kona Kula 2-9er. This has the more expensive Scandium frame - £699 delivered. Reduced from (a possibly overpriced) £1200!!!

If you work for a participating company, you can use a scheme like onyourbike.gb.com/ for a further 40% off.

Chain reaction seem to be the best prices around - postage is included. Cheaper than ebay I find for almost everything. Customer service is good too.:)

Great price for good brakes. Will be much better than mechanical disk brakes. I have some old Hayes Sole hydraulic brakes on my Rockhopper and they are fantastic. They cost more than this off eBay.

These are Post mount brakes and do not appear to come with the IS adapter (as used by most forks IIRC). There is also no mention of an actual disc in the package, may be worth checking this out before taking the plunge.

Good brakes and a good price, heat added.

thank you so much, been looking for brakes for ages

but couldnt really warrant spending about 200 on both rear + front!

edit: do you not get brake discs with these? what else do i need ot buy for these brakes?

while on the subject of brakes, i have a GT avalance 1.0 disc 07 which have hayes sole disc brakes

what size disc rotor should i get? and what IS mount?
also:
chainreactioncycles.com/Mod…679

will this chainset fit and what size of thta would one purchase? i didnt know bike components are so confusing!

I'm tempted by these, will think it over & will probably buy later.
Thanx op heat & rep :thumbsup:

Good deal, voted hot

Be careful as at this price, they may not include rotors. Voted HOT all the same!!

Post Mount: hayesdiscbrake.com/pdf…pdf
Found on Manitou and Some Rockshox and Marzocchi forks.

IS Mount: hayesdiscbrake.com/pdf…pdf
Found on everything else.

Most disc brakes come with the IS adapter so the manufacturer doesn't have to produce 2 different types of brake.

I really don't know if these come with discs (aka rotors) I was raising the issue as they are not mentioned (although virtualy nothing is!!) and it not in the picture.

It is amazing that the £40 Tesco bikes are good value brigade havent commented as yet.

They would need brakes like these as they are so heavy they are impossible to slow down once you get going - my mum has a full suspension 'mountain' bike from Woolworths which cost £39 (after discount).

Cold as you can get a whole bike from Tesco for £40. :whistling:

Well priced.

great price for some good brakes, ordered loads of stuff from chain reaction, good company imo

will this fit on rockhopper 2001 i think...

will someone advise me is there any offer for front and rear lights at the moment? pls

thanks:-D

I need to get some new V brake pads soon.... been thinking of a disc brake upgrade soon. Of course ill have to buy new hubs if i want to do this.. hmmm.

Maybe ill pass.

Can I stick these on my road bike? What results? Happiness or sadness?

excellent deal, pick up a disc compatible 2008 Rockhopper for £349, add these, sell the v-brakes et voila

no, you need disc mounts on frame, forks and disc compatible hubs. Also the levers won't fit on a drop bar either.

Ive got some AVID Juilcy three SL on my specialized pitch.


Are these better than the juicys?

Thanks

Wouldn't think there is much difference

Hey I've got mechanical discs on the front, what would I need to get these to fit? I have V-brakes on the back I'm guessing that's more hassle than it's worth!

Fronts should be a straight swap (if you get IS adapter), easier than the rear as the hose wouldn't need routing.

Rear: if you have Vs on the rear then the rear wheel is unlikely to have a hub that accepts a disc so you'd need a wheel rebuild or new wheel. Your frame may not have a disc brake mount either.

I wouldn't recommend putting hydraulic on the front and Vs on the rear, too much braking power on the front.
