Hi all,

Looking to change the Avid Elixir 1's on my Boardman FS 650b.
Would the Shimano's in the link below be OK?
I was hoping I could swap them straight over keeping my original rotors.

Personally I think you're better off with these.

It'll be a straight swap, no need to change rotors and switching from Avid to Shimano you'll find them a doddle to bleed when the need arises.

I had elixir 1's on my bike and ended up going to xt which was a massive improvement. Deore or slx will be a good step up.
