Mountain Bike Reviews - Shimano Zee Brakes 2018
Shimano Zee Brakes

Shimano's high-powered stoppers have been around for some time now, offering two flavours of four-pot power. The Saints sit up top as the benchmark and below which the less expensive Zee offers huge power but with a slightly lower spec.

Shimano AM41

While these might look like a pair of school shoes, once you are on the bike their functionality becomes clear.

Shimano Deore Double M545

Weight: 1130 Grams (complete with bottom bracket) The Deore range from Shimano has always provided excellent quality at a great price.

Shimano SLX Compact Front Derailleur

Weight: 160 Grams A specific front derailleur for double and bash set-ups, the perfect match for your SLX Double and Bash in fact. Of course you can just wind up the limit screw on a triple chainset derailleur, so you might ask what is the point of this? When you run a double set up you tend to use more...

Mountain Bike Reviews - Shimano SLX Double Crankset M665  2010
Shimano SLX Double Crankset M665

Weight: 1010 Grams (complete with bottom bracket) The M665 Double Chainset is one of the most popular double and bash set-ups on the market. It offers excellent value considering the entire chainset including the BB bearings and cranks can be bought for less than some other brands sell a bash ring and a chain guide! Although not super light, the...
