seems like a stupidly good deal on the new xt brakes, heard people had a lot of problems with rose over the past few weeks, can they be trusted to deliver the goods??

    Hit and miss for me, they are bad at updating their website, then messed me about with a partial refund.

    First time I used them was fine, the second was a mess.

    It does say that its 5 weeks wait! If you want them quicker, slane was the cheapest I found in the UK,

  • ive been looking at these aswell. under £100 for the comlete setup where as over here its that price just for the caliper and lever!

    I've had shifters , chainrings and a front and rear mech off them over the last few weeks, even with delivery I paid significantly less than I would have done had I gone to Merlin,CRC ,Wiggle etc all tracked and received within 3 days.

    Just last week they placed a special order for me for a pair of indicator covers for the 2012 SL-M780 shifters, I received them today which I'm over the moon about as Madison won't have stock until January.

    Rose are good - Ive bought a few bits, including the discs for my XT brakes, but when they're listed as 5 weeks out, what will you do? £84.18 on Slane.

  • Just had an order from Rose. Ordered Thursday night just before midnight. Arrived on Monday before lunch so pretty impressive.
