Needed a replacement and this fit the bill. This will work with most Shimano triggers. I used these on my XT levers.
These brakes have become my go-to 2 pot brakes, especially when put on a cross-country / down-country style bike. Shimano have always been easy for me to bleed and set, and I have no complaints. Thunder Mountain Bikes has also been pretty awesome as they have shipped things out unexpectedly fast. They have quickly become one of my go-to shops online for bike components.
One of my RS785 on my road bike started leaking from a cracked piston. Attempted to use third-party replacement pistons, couldn't keep hold and leaked. The 6100s hold the same pads (G03S). These 6100s are mounted up to Tiagra 4700 hydraulic brifters. Keeps my road bike happy. Thanks Thunder Mountain Bikes for a solid price and quick delivery.
The m6100 line benefits from a good deal of trickle down tech from upper trim levels. High performance at a lower price point. The only thing I miss is the banjo connection
