can't fault them

Posted21 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
I recently replaced my aging Avid Juicy 7's with this on the front, and the more expensive M697 with ice pads on the rear.
Whilst these don't look as sexy as the higher end Shimano brake sets they work flawlessly. I genuinely can't fault them, They fit in 2 minutes, and work perfectly out of the box (I got the pre-bled full set with levers and just bolted straight on).
Even on mini-dh runs with a 203 rotor they work fine and not noticed any fade at all. They even come with bolt retention options to make sure they stay tight. Well recommended.

Easy to fit.

Posted14 May 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
I got these as replacements for my m585 calipers, which were leaking oil on to the rotors. The new calipers were easy to fit and work fine with the original m585 break levers.

Does exactly what it says

Posted20 August 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, compatible with existing shimano levers
A standard, no frills, disc brake caliper - compatible with my existing shimano levers and totally up to the job for the riding I do - mainly South Downs etc. so nothing that technical. Easy bleed and set-up....more than adequate.
