everyone whines and whines about oh, they squeal, or of, they're weak.i have a better explanation: they aren't adjusted. sit down, whip out your allen key set and start tuning.you want the stationary pad very, very, very close to the rotor (or even very lightly rubbing) and the moving pad can be adjusted to how you like the levers to feel. do this, and you get powerful stopping power with, as said, less pressure on the levers. obviously, these aren't bb7's. but not only do they work, they work well. my one gripe is that the rotor is ever so slightly off center, which causes some parts of the rotor to be more powerful than others. not a huge difference, but it can cause a skid when you're squeezing those levers just before the point of skidding. its very mild, actually, but rotors shouldn't be off center.and they do NOT constantly squeal! if they get wet, yes, they will, but dry they are very quiet.bottom line? get them adjusted and they work just fine. try one out at an LBS, and you'll see, they do in fact work very well!

These replaced my V brakes because my rim was a bit messed up. When installing, one of the screws had a worn down head so the Allen wrench wouldn't fit, but I was just unlucky. Came installed with my bike, plan to change to some BB7s once these fail. Switch to BB7s: they brake so much better with less pressure applied.Overall, don't invest in these UNLESS you are money savvy, want disc brakes, and can't stretch your budget for some BB7s. Tektro IOs won't satisfy your braking power needs.

By Drew

from Ca

I am vary disappointed with these. They came on my bike and I do not trust these at all. Little stopping power (Makes ridding more thrilling, if you know what I mean). If you want something that works worst then V-Brakes but looks better, this is your pair, but if you want any stopping power look some place else.

By Ben

from Middleton, Ma United States

I bought these brakes as a cheap upgrade from V-Brakes. I pretty much got what I expected. They are reliable and give you exactly what you need. There are definitely no frills or extras with these brakes except for the sweet tektro sticker that comes with the kit. Basic brake system, easy to install and adjust.

By Aram

from Los Angeles, Ca United States

Ya, not a bad disc if you don't feel like spending more than 100 for a front and rear set. Just remember that you will have to adjust them alot. Don't be afraid to buy these, they work!4 stars because they're good but not perfect.

Only 50miles on these

By Dominik

from Il

Only 50miles on these. First disc brakes for me so i cant compare to others. But first thing i did was adjust the pads so there isnt any disc bendage. Last trail was flooded so i did about a 1/4 mile in ankle/knee deep water and no squealing so i dont know what you guys are talking about.

By Ted

from Milton, In United States

I'd say for the price, these aren't that horrible. You can get better, and I'm sure there are worse ones out there than these. If you aren't mechanically inclined enough to adjust them, then use V brakes or consider not riding a bike in the first place.

By Eric

from Springfield, Mo

I'm either an expert mechanic or these other people don't know how to adjust their brakes. I've been using these for months and don't get the squeal that they complain about... even in the rain (for the most part). I can easily stop the bike dead in its tracks with one finger.

By Brian

from Phx, Az, Usa

Good times, now that i'm getting more ballzy, its time to upgrade - maybe even the entire bike. I think slowly progressing with performance/price is always important. some people(lame friends) buy the top of the line stuff, and never get good enough to even keep up with me (intermediate) and their bikes goes to waste because they realized mtb-ing wasn't their cup of tea.

As I already said, they are not efficient and they make horrible sounds. Not all the time. When the front one finally gets quiet, the back brake starts to squeal.
