Well, I've almost totally destroyed my brake pads, so its time to change them.

However!

I have no idea what the exact brake is - came stock on my RM Etsx-30 (07) - I know its shimano deore, but no idea which model number.
Im told its the 535, but im not sure about that.

The problem comes in that when I check my usual sources of components (wiggle and chainreaction), the pads numbered dont include the 535....
They have pads for 555/556, or for 475/495/515/525 model versions. I dont really wanna remove the current pads until I have the new ones (as theyre not 100% spent) - it seems too much hassle to remove and replace them, at the same time, I dont want to order the wrong ones and potentially be unable to ride till its sorted (right now I can ride the ones I have, but they wont last much longer).

Can anyone help me out with this?
Thanks

Here you go....

Universal Cycles has them clearly listed. The pads you need are the last two listed, either resin or metalic. http://www.universalcycles.com/shopping/product_details.php?id=677&category=31 That's the only beef I have with Shimano disc brakes. Seems like every model they make uses a different pad. Not really so, but they do have more different pad configurations out than just about anybody else.

Good Dirt
