good block upgrade

Posted14 August 2015
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Good upgrade if you want some cartridge blocks to replace (for example) stock Tiagra pads. Pretty easy to set up and the fin faces in the direction of travel for both front and back.

Worthwhile upgrade

Posted13 December 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Upgraded my stock tiagra brakes to these for number of reasons
Tiagra units do not have replaceable rubbers
Softer rubber
Able to come to a controlled stop rather than hoping to stop eventually

Great upgrade for lower end brakes

Posted11 March 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I got these to upgrade the pads on my new bike that came with Shimano R451 calipers. Very good firm feel at the lever. Much more power, at least in the dry. Like most rim brakes they still aren't great in the wet, but few are. I made the mistake of only ordering one set, which is only one pair, for one end of the bike. Oops, a second set is now on order for the rear wheel!
