With deore, slx and xt price rocketing , I needed a cheap replacement brake on a bike ,
Luckily it was a right hand lever , as that's all they have left,
Note U.K. Bikes tend to be left hand lever rear brake, right hand lever front brake, so I guess these are American stock as they come with long hose cable lengths, but just cut them down

Having used these hydraulic brakes before they ain't bad..

You will need to cut the hoses down, but all you need is a Stanley knife and 5 mins watching a YouTube video

I replaced these with SLX and I can't say the difference was that noticeable. This is an awesome price for a decent brake. The hoses are very easy to shorten on shimano brakes too. Shame they don't have both.

Got my black m396 brake set today
And it comes with what looks to be sintered brake pads which are worth £10-12 on the own, standard resin are £7.99

Just spotted this very specialist brake
XTR M9020 R/H Lever 1000mm Hose (I.e. Front brake) £90 including the 10% discount, these look the dogs danglers and retail at £140-145 everywhere else..

Did your brakes come with spare olive/barb? I have managed to get a left hand lever so was looking to swap them over. Do u need additional barb and olive or can you reuse the ones on?
