Second lever to replace in under two years. The ceramic piston breaks and the brake is useless. The shimano hydraulic disc brakes are oem on the terra trike spyder- a 4000$ trike. Consequently i either have to spend a lot to replace the braking system or keep the 40$ levers on hand as well as fluid and pads to maintain the brakes.
Got my brake lever before the weekend! Thank you
My only gripe is that part of its design is the brace that forces you to place it at a minimum distance from the grips. So your shifter has no other place to go but further out away from the stem and closer to the grips. But it works well, easy install and to bleed. Aside from the forced distancing from the grips, this is typical Shimano equipment . It works well and is affordable and has no issues ( I’ve had another pair of these levers).
We bought these Deore BL-M6100 brake levers to upgrade from from the stock Tektro levers that came on the Specialized Turbo Vado 4.0 SL. The Deore levers feel really solid and mechanically smooth. Bleeding was easy and the resulting braking paired with Shimano SLX BR-M7110 calipers is amazing. Also, we have purchased from Thunder Mountain Bikes on multiple occasions, and everytime, the shipping has been really fast.
Fixed the braking feel of my wife's M200 brakes.
