Caliper Disc Brakes Front Mechanism BR-M416 Standard
Shimano Alivio BR-M416 is a mechanical disc brake clamp that provides users with a large and fully controlled braking force.
The clamp has a very comfortable regulation of the cladding so that each of its users can make adjustments by themselves, without specialized tools, and most importantly, each can set the distance of the claddings from the dial in accordance with their preferences.

- Patten: 160mm 6 bolt Standard 44MM & 22MM pitch-row stainless steel Disc.
- Front & Rear 160mm Rotors, Smooth power modulation and easy adjustability, metal ceramic pad compound.
- Refitting for use with linear pull brake levers (Cyclocross Bike, Road Bike, Mountain Bike).
- A complete set of brakes for the price of one caliper of BB5s.
- Can’t really say that it appeared to be much different then BB5s, even used the same pads.
- The housing and cables were of decent quality, and the rotors looked fine.
- I installed the caliper and rotor on the rear of my bike to replace the blown hydraulic I had been using.
- Breaking power was lackluster even after being broken in.
- About half an hour into my first trail ride with them power started to get decent and I was thinking, OK these are going to be great.
- Half an hour later I felt a snap at the lever and lost all brake power.
- Checked and found that as soon as the brake pad should contact the rotor it would snap back into its housing.
- It could have just been a random dud, but I’m not risking brake failure while I’m riding my bike.
- This was almost a direct fit with very little modification needed.
- Installed on a Rover recumbent trike to replace Alhonga disc brake.
- Disassembled the unit and detected a piece of tramp debris in assembly that appeared to be preventing the proper seating of the inside ramp against the caliper body.
- Reassembled and the caliper now works but I will not reuse on my trike.
- Perhaps OK for very cheap cycle short term replacement.
- Purchased better quality set from quality manufacturer.
- That said, these are FAR BETTER than anything that comes on cheap bikes.
- Easy enough for my son to squeeze with 2 fingers, enough bite after being bedded in that he can stop damn near on a dime.
- Not a headache any more than any other mechanica, disc brakes are to deal with.
- So no complaints but understand these are cheap brakes.
- Not for stopping a grown adult on a mountain bike trail.
- The only issue for me is to remember not to pull too hard – I might fly over the handle bars.
- So a month ago I order a kit and the lever pull is mushy, they don’t grab – sucks.
- Now get this, I used the same parts (Cables and mounts) for the new AFTERPARTZ up grade, I only changed out the levers and calipers, and no mushy, quick stop – just like the Shimano’s .
- I purchased them as an affordable backup mechanical disc system for a MTB that I have that has a lifetime warranty against leaks for a fully hydraulic front & rear disc brake system.
- The time between sending those hydraulic brake units in for repair/replacement is quite lengthy and the bike is out of commission, especially if it’s the front brake which is 75% or more of your braking power.
- One can get by without a rear brake, but the front brake is critically necessary.
- That said, this product appears to be a solid backup system the next time that hydraulic system requires warranty work.
- I had to use the mount that was on my last caliper for the rear, but that is not bringing marks down for me.
- All parts are painted including the threads so be careful when installing.
- If you are planning on using this for downhill mountain biking I recommend getting something better these brakes are cheap.
