My google skills fail me. Where should/can I buy one NEWEST model, complete(disc too) Shimano Saint front brake from? The price difference needs to be substantial btw for me to not buy at the Cafe. I don't even know what msrp is.

I think you can get the 19% tax back too..

no singles with discs though.

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Shimano's don't come with rotors…

I just sold one for $250. That is close to wholesale price.

CRC is usually the cheapest at $260.

I think 2 cost me $380 including the shipping. They - the 19% vat before you check out once you list Canada as the shipping destination it does that for you.

everyone is doing that? vat is only for shippings to the EU, not to states outside of it

It seems those^ guys are just over in Kelowna.

So it looks like I'd need a new hub too eh? Is a center lock disc mount the thing now or a one-off?

…or is there a 6bolt rotor that would work with the Saint brake?

Odd that CRC only has moto options. $245/end. If you were buying both it wouldn't matter as it is dead simple to swap sides.

Try to have a fair conversation with your LBS. I was very surprised at what mine did for me on a set.

Yes there is 6 bolt options. Look for the Saint/XT rotors in 6 bolt config. Not sure where you are planning on getting them from though

ummm, as your doctor i recommend against riding with a scaphoid fracture.

I'll always give the LBS a shot at selling me what I want. It's never been an issue before actually…as I was either buying a complete bike or stuff under $100 one purchase at a time kinda thing so the price differences don't matter. Support the LBS.
But I do have to think about a bigger purchase like this where the price difference could be 2 or 3+ $20 bills difference in one shot…

i picked up a set of xt brakes from them. they are indeed in bc. no troubles, shipping was superfast and the price was the best i could find

edit: i see they've got xt's back in stock for 109$, with free shipping
