Pros: Great stoppers, great price.

Cons: Not as light as higher models

Recommendation: I'm digging these so far after 100 miles. They stop my fat bike. I'd buy again

Pros: Inexpensive Powerful Low maintenance

Cons: They are on my wife's bike, not mine. No modulation, they are either on or off. Tend to lock up the wheels easily.

Recommendation: My wife loves these brakes, when my avid 5's go I will definitely look into getting these.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Affordable , easy of installation, no corky washers to fool with on the adapters

Cons: Cotter Pin rattles

Recommendation: I purchased these to replace by BB7's on my SS. For the money.. WOW what an upgrade. Shimano skimped on not tapping threads on the caliper so there is a cotter pin that holds the pads in place. They tend to rattle quite a bit, but was not a deal breaker.
