      This super affordable kit included everything. I replaced some hydraulics that had developed some stubborn leaks. I couldn't be happier! Good quality and a great price.

            My old Avid brakes bit the dust on my Marin mountain bike. The bike sat, until I saw these bargain brakes. They were easy to install and are working great. Came with everything I needed, including pads and cables.

            Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Set:

            Needed an inexpensive replacement on my training bike. I am a XC rider so hydraulics aren't essential. Brakes are easy to install and stopping power is adequate. Only shortcoming so far is the annoying squeaking after the brake in period. They're solid brakes.

            Easy install. Good Looking. The brakes are a little noisier that I expected. The brakes work great though. Make sure you follow the break in procedures. Highly recommended.

                Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Set:

                These brakes actually went on quite easily. However once they were installed there was nothing I could do to stop the squeal. I tried everything short of rubbing dirt in the brakes (yes a shop did recommend doing just that). I replaced them with BB7s and voila, problem solved. Could have been a faulty pair, could have been user error on my part, but it was the fourth set of disc brakes I've installed and the only one I've had problems with. Would not recommend these.

                  Comments about Nashbar Mechanical Disc Brake Set:

                  I needed a set of Disc brakes after the rear Hydro brake busted on my girlfriends bike I just built. I needed something in a pinch and didnt have the extra cash to dish out for a new rear setup. I figured for the price you are getting alot for your money. Boy was I spot on! They are Tektro IO's and while you might find reviews saying they are junk its because they do not know how to set up Mech Disc Brakes.

                  I took the old rotors off and slapped the new ones on in minutes, the cable they give you in the set is great and the housing is really good stuff(Have a good set of wire cutters)Installing was cake if you know what you are doing.

                  Now as for the performance, like any disc brake they get better with time, but even out of the box I was locking up the rear on the road testing them out and the front could toss me over the bars if I wanted to. She has been riding these since I built the bike a bit over a month now and I do not think twice about if I should have kept the hydros on her bike. She isnt doing any crazy downhill or anything like that but even when I took her bike in the trails for a test run I had no problem what so ever.

                  I am not saying they work on pair as my Avid Hydros but they sure as heck to the job and some for an under rated disc brake FULL set.

                  I feel like alot of people stay away from this set or just ignore it because they dont wanna take a chance on buying junk. If you are building a 2nd bike or are strapped for cash GET THIS SET. There is nothing to fear in the rebranded Nashbar name.

                  My one small tiny problem is every now and then from taking the front wheel on and off to transport the bike you some times need to do a bit of readjusting to stop minor rubbing. I do keep the adjustments very tight. Not a big deal as you should be riding with some form of tools in your bag ;)

                  These brakes are amazing for the money. I have these on my 26" singlespeed and they are much easier to set up and adjust than the Avid BB7 brakes on my 29" singlespeed (with Avid SD7 levers). I have been very happy with the performance and never feel like I need something stronger. Let's face it, hydraulics aren't really necessary for XC racing speeds. The only problem I have had is that while adjusting the rear brake the paint flaked under and around the bolt. As for aesthetics, I like the simple black paint, but would like a textured black lever (Like the SD7s) instead of the polished aluminum. You won't be disappointed.
