    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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. :)

Some of the parts we sell here at Halfords have been reconditioned. These will carry a Refundable Deposit or an extra surcharge amount. When you add one of these reconditioned items to your basket, we'll add this extra cost automatically.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
