I recommend this product
ProsIt works
Bought to replace inadequate Shimano caliper on a touring bike (heavy rider!).
Straight swap with better performance and a lighter action to boot.
Questions & Answers (5)
Will these work with both 140 and 160mm rotors
21 May 2019
is it a case of adapters in the kit for various roto sizes, or do I need to have a 140mm model or a 160mm model
HI there,

This will only work with 160mm rotors. It would be a case of having to get a 140mm model and a 160mm model I'm afraid.

What cables for Shimano R550 levers ?
27 Jul 2018
I am gonna get Shimano R550 levers which are SJSC part 14892.
We would suggest using SJS Cycles part number : 29149

Are pads and cables included?
27 Jul 2018
If not what cables would your recommend for my touring bike?
Brake pads are included, cables are not. You will need to specify which brake levers you are using to recommend cables..
Is this the price for both front and rear?
27 Jul 2018
Also are the cables included?
Would you recommend road or mtb version for touring mostly on road and gravel trails?
This is for 1 brake and 1 rotor, you use the same brake for front or rear, so you need to order 2 for a pair.

The road / mtb version choice is 100% dictated by the brake levers you are using to match the suitable pull ratio.

Could you please recommend levers that would work on a straight handlebar.
My cables are SRAM Shimano® Universal MTB brake cable head.

As these are the road versions of the BB7 brakes they use the same cable pull as caliper and cantilever brakes so you require a set of flat bar levers suitable for use with this type of brake. We stock a few including the Shimano R550 levers which are SJSC part 14892.
