Good value, efficient, brake blocks not amazing

PostedAugust 17, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I am happy with this product. Stops the bike, doesn't fall apart, not too heavy. Brake blocks are fine but not outstanding especially in wet weather so one might wish to upgrade these. Overall pretty good and good value I would say.

solid product, easy to install and adjust

PostedNovember 8, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
This caliper is solid but light. It is very easy to install and has everything necessary for easy adjustment. Good for less-experienced bikers. I have replaced the original caliper on a road bike from the 80s, and it works great. The brake pads are high quality and work very well. I like the system that allows the proper angling of the pad against the rim. Overall recommended!

Good price ítem

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Cons: poor quality break pad
Good product. I definetly recommend this breaks calipers if you want something good for a good price. The only problem is that the break pads are not very good.

Upgraded to these from stock Tektro calipers. The difference is night and day! Much more responsive with a smoother feel. Would recommend as a cheap upgrade.

A worthwhile upgrade over unbranded calipers

PostedDecember 12, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I bought this front caliper to replace my unbranded caliper that had stopped working correctly. This is a better caliper, it performs well with the brake pads supplied but I will upgrade these to catridge pads when they run out which I think will improve performance even more.
I wouldn't fit these to a high-end bike but for 20-odd notes you can't go wrong.
