Quality caliper for reasonable price.

PostedMay 10, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, strong piston
Cons: Heavy, quite bulky
This is a great product. Probably the best mechanical caliper out there. Bought to replace a cheap mechanical disc caliper that came with my wife's MTB. Immediately feel the difference in the strength of the piston and release spring. My wife says it's like riding a different bike (one that stops!).
Down sides are size and weight. It's quite bulky to accommodate the strong piston. This and the strength of the materials used make it quite heavy especially in comparison to hydraulic equivalents. If weight is important to you buy a hydraulic brake set but get ready to spend lots.
If you're looking for a cheapish upgrade to disc brakes or to replace poor mechanical calipers this is the one to buy. I'm so impressed with the quality that I've ordered a couple to upgrade the V brakes on my own MTB.
