Shimano XTR M985 Adapter - Post Mount Calliper to Post Type Fork Mount 180mm

For 2011 Shimano has split the XTR range into two very distinct but still complementary ranges labelled 'Trail' and 'Race'. The best part though is that the XTR trail is the yin to the XTR Race's yang, and together mountain biking's first family of components offers a broad matrix of fully interchangeable options to tube your ride.

Does the job.

PostedJanuary 10, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: Expensive
What can you say about this mount? It does exactly what it's designed to do.
Fitted in seconds and caliper alignment set in seconds too.
Only downside is since it's badged as 'XTR' it's a few quid more than other Shimano mounts though.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight
Does exactly what you'd expect it to do, and is compatible with other shimano post mount brakes, not just the xtr. (I use it with SLX)
Very good weight, well finished product

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
This is really well crafted adapter compared to my old Avid ones. Shimano made simple thing even simpler. It works great since finish is precise, it's light and even look good by it's minimalist design. What more could you ask from adapter? Recommended!
