  • look for the number on the calliper it will be something like BR- M535 ( the 3 numbers are the important bit)

    Email it to me and ill tell you which pad you need

    (or look at the pad identifier on our website to see the difference in shape)

    Hope this helps.
    Ever thought about doing a bikeradar bulk buy discount for us all? :wink:
  • i cant see a number on the caliper

  • bigbenj_08 - Email me with what you like for bulk prices. Discount for 10+ packs at a time on the website under special codes.

    Smiler666 - The code on the shimano pads relates to the compound not brake type. Just check the picture against our pad identifier. Here are the three possibilities:

    S1 - hole at one end and a hook at the other.
    S2 - Tab in the middle/top with a hole in
    S3 - Tab at the end with a hole in
