Be aware that these brakes must have originally been sourced from Europe. In Europe the Rear Brake is the Left Lever and the Front brake is the Right lever, this is opposite of the US Standard. Though these are pre-bled, you will need to swap the levers around and partial bleed the system again if you would like the levers to follow the US standard.

I have two reasons I gave it four stars and not five:
1. The kit came with shifter instructions, not brake instructions. You should be able to figure out how to install, not much to it.
2. Don't know why, but the right brake lever is set up for the front brake not the rear like very other bike. It is noted that way. I switched the lines, so the right lever is for the rear brake. You will need to bleed the brake if you switch the lines.

Note; it is shipped from China, so allow 3 weeks for shipping.

For the price you can't beat it, two fingers is all you need to lock up these brakes. I would recommend these brakes.

Upgraded my 2007 Rush from Avid BB7 to these and the difference in stopping power is significant. Highly recommend this for anyone with mechanicals looking for a cheap upgrade. No squeaks at on on my first ride. One or two fingers is all you need one the levers. With the mechanicals I had to pull with 3 fingers to get enough stopping power.

Switching the left and right levers is very easy, just use an 8mm wrench and unscrew the lines and swap the levers. If done before you press the lever for the first time there is no fluid lost and you won't have to bleed them.

I had to buy an adapter for the front separately since the lefty fork has IS mounts and this is a post mount brake. I got the Shimano F160P/S and it fits perfectly. The rear comes with an adapter attached. Also had to buy a longer line for the rear. Measured the old brake line and it was 1550mm so bought the Shimano BH-90 hose kit with 1700mm hose. Install of a new line is very simple but then the brake needs to be bled.

I bought these to upgrade my MTN bike to discs. As others have said; you will need to swap the the brakes if you want to have them setup for US style right brake lever controls rear brake. As others found, this was super easy and I also didn't have to bleed them afterwards. I found it strange that during the swap, not a drop of fluid leaked out. I was expecting a mess and having to bleed them, but I didn't either. So glad I went hydro and not cable disc. These brakes rock compared to my old rim brakes.

* They perfectly fits on my Specialized Hardrock 2012.
* Delivered on time according spec.
* No problem up to now in regards of performance (after a month of regular use).

* Eventhough:
- There was no instalation instruction in the package, They were so easy to install.
- Brake levers were inverted. Since Right brake lever is set up for the front brake not the rear like it was set as default. Actually I like it more, but at the end It's really a matter of personal preference.

I am very happy with these brakes. The kit fit my 2011 Trek wahoo perfectly and included all necessary hardware. It did not come with instructions and the levers were set up correctly for US configurations, contrary to what some of the precious reviewers have said. Stopping power is ample, I'm about 200 lbs and often tow two kids in a trailer so I needed a major upgrade and this did the trick!

i bought and installed these. the installation was pretty much a bolt-on swap to replace the tektro brakes on my trek 8.4ds. the only issue i had was i had to swap the handles left to right, since they were setup the euro way. but it was fairly easy, and i didnt have to bleed them.

Excellent brakes. Very happy. Comes with one mounting block, you just buy another one. I was able to swap levers without needing to bleed. No problem with cable length.
