Say goodbye to Avid, Hayes, Formula, and so on. This is hands the the best brake ever. You'll know the difference the moment you pull the lever for the first time. Brake feels very precise, super smooth. and there's more than enough braking power. I would recommend this brake everyone.

The chrome part of the master cylinder is paint. Which means, if you crash, the paint will come off. Just FYI.

Jenson's page for this item clearly shows this is the old brake lever in the description and the photo, but Jenson shipped me the new -B version.
Now I wasted my time for almost three weeks of delays getting the correct parts, plus the hassle of returning these useless parts.

I can not believe Shimano did this to us customers, it's not all Jensons fault but it is at least half because Jenson correctly labels the full kits of brakes with the new i-spec-b version noted in its description but they didn't fix the sale page for the lever replacement unit to show it's also only available in the B version now.

    Comments about Shimano XT BL-M785-L Brake Levers:

    Site was unclear about the lever being gen. 2 of the Ispec compatability and contradicted a photo of an Ispec shifer which stated to be gen. 2 but had a gen. 1 in the photo. The confusion was rectified by Jenson sending me the proper Ispec conversion kit free of charge so I am very pleased with the products and the service I received to correct the issue.

          Comments about Shimano XT BL-M785-L Brake Levers:

          As always, easy to install Shimano XTs. They bite hard and have little to no fade when going down Downieville. Worthwhile upgrade.

          Only issue is with design when mixed with user error. I wasn't paying attention when making some fine tune adjustments and turned my torque wrench up too many newton meters and broke the handle bar clip on the XT lever. Yeah, definitely user error. I was still able to jimmy-rig a solution to get down Downieville Classic. But, had to buy a whole new brake lever afterwards. Shimano should design in a throw-away $10 piece that isolates the handle bar clamp from the rest of the lever so if it does break, then the whole lever doesn't need to be replaced.
