shimano br rs786 post mount caliper alternative

Hi
Wondered if there was an mtb or road alternative caliper to replace my broken rs785 that have perished. Im guessing most post mount calipers will fit frame butwhich have same hose fittings ?
Fairly new to disc brakes so not much knowledge.
Welcome any advice.
thanks Steffan

  • You can still buy rs785 callipers new https://www.bike24.com/p293387.html
    I’ve purchased loads of stuff from them with no issues. Often cheaper than UK. Alternatively try eBay.

    I'm using Deore m6000 post mount calipers with rs685 shifters - would think the same should work for you :)

    any shimano caliper will do! m6000 and m7000 m80000 will get the same pads too. the m7000 is the chapest option with ceramic pads.
  • Hope calipers.
