  • Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent value Very good product, would recommend. store staff could do with a little more training as were not very happy to answer any questions. 17 August 2015
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Subtle and effective upgrade Well made, nice finish and rattle free 2 finger design by Shimano, complete with quality cables. I chose black to match bike bits for smart subtle look. I had checked out lever/pivot measurements for 'mechanical advantage' ratios of several levers and found the BL-R550 spot on for side-pull dual-pivot caliper brakes as fitted to my road-bike with flat h'bars. They are also good for traditional cantilever brakes. Do not use for linear-pull 'V' brakes, their levers are usually 'labelled' as such. Usual good service and a 'special' price from Halfords. 29 August 2014
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant I purchased these to go on some bull horn bars on an old Peugeot racing bike. They are absolutely mint. Great price, plus all the inner cables, outers, and able ends are included. Fantastic bit of kit for the money. :) 16 June 2014
