      Comments about Shimano Deore BR-M596 Disc Brake:

      Bought this for my second bike after using them on another one for a year. Replaced a pair of mechanical disc brakes.
      Setup was very easy with the tool provided for cutting the hose and required no bleeding.
      This brakes are excellent for all kinds of rides.

        I bought these to replace some Hayes Nine brakes and I can't be happier. Great modulation and no need to bleed, right out of the box. Real two finger braking and they have awesome stopping power. I installed them quickly and easily and could not be happier with the purchase.

            Definite upgrade from and did BB7's! Great power great modulation. Super easy to bleed and install. They tend to fade a little under constant heavy loads. They still do theyre job though. If you're in the market (on a budget) for a great hydraulic brake system these are for you! Best bang for your buck for sure!

            I installed this by myself. I'm in Iowa so won't be able to ride for another couple months. They look good and feel good compared to my Hayes Sole that were on it originally.

                Very good performance per dollar ratio! Stops my 29er hardtail with confidence when using 180 front and 160 rear rotors. Was surprised at how good the lever feel is, very easy to modulate. Install was simple. Jury is still out on durability but I have faith!

                  Comments about Shimano Deore BR-M596 Disc Brake:

                  I bought these to replace the Avid Elixir 1's I had on my 29er hardtail. I am so glad I did. So far just installed the front brake, will do the rear brake shortly but didn't want to have front and rear brakes brand new on the bike as I am currently using my bike as a commuter and wanted to make sure they were nice and broken in first.

                  I used to have a set of 1st generation XT discs and these brakes are very similar in feel. I think Shimano makes the best feeling brake levers on the market. The stopping power is great, it didn't take long to get the pads nice and bedded in. I did a few hard stops down an hill and some extended braking and voila they were nice and grabby. Levers have a solid feel and not mushy.

                  I haven't had to bleed these yet but they seem like they are quite easy to bleed from what I can see in the video tutorial and it uses mineral oil which is much better than DOT in my opinion. The Avids I previously used were mushy feeling and a pain to bleed.

                  I would suggest picking up a set of these if you are interested in upgrading your discs. It is the entry level Shimano but I can't see how the SLX that I have on my other bike is that much better, it does have the reach adjustment knob but other than that and maybe some lighter weight I can't justify spending more just for SLX.

                  Comments about Shimano Deore BR-M596 Disc Brake:

                  I bought these originally to replace the Hayes Stroker Trail set (which was problematic) on my wife's Kona; was so impressed by them that I bought another set to replace the Elixer 9s on my Santa Cruz. At half the price of the Elixier 9 set, these brakes work much better, less noisy, easy to bleed. Easy lever squeeze allows 1-finger braking. I'm very happy with the less expensive Shimanos
