I have come across Ti brake pad retainer pins for Formula R1 callipers but cannot recall where ..... anyone come across them? (reason for asking it they were cheaper than the alloy ones, which are around £ 10 for a single pin! :shock: - and am looking to replace the steel ones fitted to RX callipers)

Nfcycling (user: Nef1234) on ebay have been very good in the past for out of the ordinary Formula spares. I pretty sure I have seen Ti pad retaining pins sold there but am not sure if there are currently stocked

Does anyone have R1's and XTR 985's side by side to know if one of these R1 pad pins could fit XTR? I think they won't be long enough for XTR but am curious
