Are these 2 compatible?

Hi, I recently posted a thread wondering whether Avid Elixir 1's will fit with these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Shimano-AL...item35be8aa122
- I've already bought these.

But I've bought these instead of the Avid Elixirs:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2013-Shimano-SLX-BL-BR-M675-M675-MTB-Hydraulic-Disk-Brake-Set-Pair-Front-Rear-/200972691470?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&hash=item2ecae7e80e

- I was wondering whether I will have any fitting issues, does anyone have the same setup and can tell me if they fit Ok.

Thanks for your time

I'm not sure what you are asking, however shift levers and brake sets are separate so they will work. What cassette will you be using?

I'm using a Shimano Altus 7 Speed derailleur, I've probably worded it wrong but I want to know whether there will be any fitting issues like will they fit on my bars and will they clash like if I put the brake on, will the shifters fit right up next to the brake clamp? Sorry if I can't word it right, I'm having a mental block

I can't imagine why the levers won't butt up to the shifters just as any Shimano levers would. I'm sure there are others who've done exactly the same thing, and SRAM have anticipated such an application. I suggest you try it and respond to this thread about the success or failure of the combination.

I will, I only posted this thread because I'm quite new to the bike scene so i just wanted to make sure everything was Ok, and yes I will post again on how it goes, thanks for the help anyway.
