WTS - Sydney - Brand new 105 front & rear brakes

Postby Fleshpiston » Tue Jan 13, 2009 11:38 am

Gd'day all,

Brand new current model Shimano 105 (5600) front and rear brake set. They haven't been mounted before on a bike, however, the original washers have been accidentally misplaced. Therefore, some aftermarket aluminium washers as in the picture will be supplied with the brakes.

A great upgrade for anyone riding with sora, tiagra or the superseded 9 speed 105 (5500) groupset. Asking a firm $100

All the best,
Brad

*ponders whether $100 could be slipped past GLW to replace brakes on a 3 week old bike*

Wouldn't mind em but probably too early to consider upgrading. Good luck selling em though :)

whats the reach on these?

They look like they have more than my Ultegra's.

I have an old steelie that I have put on 700c wheels that I have upgraded the front caliper with a no-name generic that fits well but I know its reach is a bit longer.
