Comments:

I got this to replace the rear hydraulic disk brake on my mountain bike after dealing with leaking from the lever and bleeds that never lasted. Not only is it less expensive than hydraulic brakes, it requires far less maintenance to feel good. It doesn't have the modulation of a hydraulic brake, but the stopping power is good enough to do rear-wheel-hopping style trials-mountain biking with confidence.
