They are 6 bolt and used for 80kms so far ;) They may or may not howl for you - can’t guarantee either way
Can you DM me a price please? Do you only have 203mm?

Lastly, do they come with pads? If not can you point me to the correct ones?
 

Minlak

Giant... yeah baby.

They are the ones on my E-Bike I am having howling problems with - was just being funny - well trying to - I am waiting on new pads from Uberbike to see if it’s pads causing the howling if that corrects it I will have RT 66 for sale - if it doesn’t I will have RT 86 for sale - I will pm first before I lost anything

@HamboCairns - if you are keen for the specialized shoes sign up to their mailing list. They should go on sale for black friday. they did last year. they were 25% off.
The only problem right now is supply - I have been trying to get new specialized shoes in my size for 5 mths - the Roost released and internet out of stock in heaps of sizes immediately :(

Bugger, I'm size 48 so hopefully there's not too much demand for that!

Lol - You can only get 48 in Black and I have been chasing them since release - I think I found a pair in Cairns but that shop hasn't answered emails and chances of a possible discount are slim from a retail shop.
