Asked by: Dante Sullivan

Can you mix Shimano levers and calipers?

Yes you can use the combination you want.

Are Shimano calipers interchangeable?

Also, just like SLX all the callipers, whether two or four piston, are interchangeable with the levers, so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.

Can you use flat mount brakes on post mount frame?

Add flat mount brakes to post mount frames and forks with our newest innovation: the Wolf Tooth Post to Flat Mount Brake Adapter. This component allows flat mount brakes to be added to a frame or fork that was designed for post mount brakes—an asset for cyclists who want to run road groupsets on mountain bike frames.

Are hydraulic brake levers interchangeable?

So yup you definitely can, as long as they are designed to take the same type of fluid.

Can you mix and match Shimano MTB components?

Just for clarity, current generation (10-, 11- and 12-speed) Shimano road and mountain bike components are not inter-compatible with each other because they use different cable pull ratios. For example, you couldn’t use a set of road shifters with a mountain bike rear derailleur.

What is the difference between Shimano BH59 and BH90?

The Newer BH90 hose is actually SMALLER in internal diameter, giving better braking performance. (You lose less pressure from liquid compression.) The BH59 and BH90 Olives are identical, the barbs however are different, because of the different internal diameter of the tubing. They are not interchangeable.

What does free stroke do on XT brakes?

Shimano: Free stroke is defined as stroke of the lever before the pads start touching the rotor. The free stroke screw simply changes the starting point of the master cylinder piston. If the screw is all the way in, the master cylinder piston will be all the way in, and the free stroke will be the shortest.

Are front and rear calipers interchangeable?

The calipers are identical, the adapter is the only difference.

Is deore better than SLX?

Shimano SLX

The differences between SLX and Deore at the 12-speed level is mainly in weight and aesthetics. SLX parts look a little bit more refined, and the cassette gets an alloy spider which saves about 67g in weight compared to its Deore counterpart.

What is the difference between flat mount and post mount?

The main difference between these two standards is the mounting bolt distance. While post-mount is using a 74mm mount, flat-mount has a bolt distance of 34mm. That being said, make sure to check your fork and frame specifications before buying a brake.

Is mount vs post mount?

Post mount is two bolt holes that bolt into the fork parrallel to the wheel. IS mount is two bolt holes where the bolts go at 90 degrees to the wheel (which is what I suspect your J2s are).

What is post mount 160 brakes?

Post mounts are welded tabs that have internal threading. The brake screws right into the mount in the frame. You get adaptors to account for the size of the rotor. These were designed for mountain bikes, so you can get adapters to work with rotors from 160 mm to 203 mm.

Can I use 12 speed derailleur with 11 speed cassette?

So you can’t use a 12 speed derailleur on an 11 speed setup or vice versa but you can you an xtr 12/11 speed shifter on an 11 speed drivetrain.

How many speeds should a mountain bike have?

All high-end mountain bikes are now equipped with 12 gears, and more and more bikes in the mid-range price spectrum are coming with 10 or 11 gears.

What is the SRAM equivalent of Shimano XT?

Can you mismatch brake levers and calipers?

From the answer to this question on the other thread, yes, you can.

Are Shimano brake lever blades interchangeable?

They are, pretty much all Shimano calipers and levers are interchangeable.

Are Shimano disc brakes interchangeable?

Registered. Any solid steel rotor is interchangeable. The ice tech sandwich ones may have special pad needs as mentioned above but I expect whatever comes in the GRX caliper is already meeting that need.

Are all Shimano brake hoses the same?

Brake hoses – Shimano essentially use two hose designs. They both have the same external diameter, but the internal on the higher end hose is narrower. As the surrounding material is steel-reinforced, this makes the hose stiffer on the narrower hose. The cheaper hose is code BH59, and the stiffer hose is BH90.

Can I use BH90 instead of BH59?

The BH59 and BH90 Olives are identical, the barbs however are different, because of the different internal diameter of the tubing. They are not interchangeable.

Are Shimano and SRAM brake hoses the same?

No. Interface between the caliper and lines are different. Shimano and SRAM brakes are not interchangeable. Shimano brake lines are designed for mineral oil not dot fluid.
