Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Лёгкие, тормозят намертво Великолепные тормоза, я в восторге. Сравнивал с уровнем Ultegra, разницу нашел лишь в цене. Идеальное соотношение цена\качество. Однозначно рекомендую! 08 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what you need Upgraded the Tektro's on my Giant Defy with these and the stopping power is cracking! Far less lever pull required and the feel is improved as well. Now a lot more confident on long downhill sections. Very easy to install and to set up correctly. Cannot compare to any other higher level components, but beats the Tektro's hands down and more than suitable for my needs and level! 02 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Previous 105 brakes lasted 5000 miles Replacing existing 105 group set that has lasted 5000 miles from new before I decided the replace - great value with the discounts at Chain Reaction 31 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great brakes but choose wisely! Ordering and delivery to Australia was very quick and easy. Received the brakes and fitted the front to my flat bar road bike with the pads right at the bottom of the adjustment. I literally have a 1mm gap to the top of the rim which is not ideal, but workable. The rear brake was a different story, however. After trying to fit the rear it was very obvious that the 49mm drop was not long enough and after researching I found that I'm not the only person who has come across this issue with 105/standard Ultegra brake calipers. I have since ordered a rear Shimano Ultegra R650 brake caliper which has a 57mm drop and will fit perfectly. I should have done my research prior to purchasing. No fault of CRC and no quality issues with Shimano. Can't fault CRC for price and service, they are fantastic. 19 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by no comments for products from Shimano it does what it takes. so far shimano products has always done what is required from it. 09 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worthy upgrade Upgraded from standard brakes on Felt Z100. Work fine with existing levers and give a much, much better braking performance. Well worth the upgrade. 07 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product.! I brought this product to replace an old shimarno cassette and am very happy with the quality and performance of this product although I can see myself getting through a lot of brake pads!! I would recommend this product to others. Now all I need are some new brake leavers. 04 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by does what its told to do I upgraded my old brakes with these and what a difference! so responsive and quick to open easy to adjust. 28 April 2014

I have fitted them to my Z100 which I believe has 2300 levers and they work fine. No problems at all.

Answer: 
There is no reason that the 105 brakes shouldn't work with 2300 STI levers that I can see. I'm using Sora levers that came with my bike which were operating Tektro brakes, seeing as it's a matter of a cable pulling the brake lever I can't see a problem. Great improvement though!

Answer: 
These calipers are only compatible with the 5700, 6700 and 7900 brake levers. This is due to them having a slightly different pull ratio.

Answer: 
Please ignore the below if you've done something with it already.

I, well, my son actually, also had 9s Sora Sti levers and Tectro brakes, and I
changed the brakes to 5700, although I knew only 5600 would fit 9s Sora and
5700 woudn't. I knew about the pull racio and had heard that the braking power
wuold be too strong. I tought it would be just fine if it got stronger.

Just as I thought, there hasn't been any problem so far. 5700s are just fantastic.
He just couldn't go dowm hill as fast as he wanted because of the poor reliability
of Tectro, which does not work at all, as you do understand, but now, he's doing
at something like 70km/h with lots of confidence.

If they work too much, I think you can arrange it with the wire tension.
But either way, always on your own responsibility.

Pleased if the above would help even a abit.

Good luck.

Compatibility

Got SRAM Rival shifters and Tektro brakes. Looking to replace the Tektros. Also got 25mm tyres and mudguards. Will the 105s handle the tyres / mudguards and be compatible with the Rival shifters?

Answer: 
The 105s are compatible with the Rival shifters. I have Rival on the CX bicycle and 105s on the road bicycle. The cable travel on the CX bicycle is 8-9 mm and 9-10 mm on the road bicycle. Just almost the same.
It's impossible to say whether your tyres+mudguards compatible with 105s or not because you didn't specify the type of mudguards. I can only note Tektros have a little more space for mudguards than 105s.

Answer: 
Please forget about the below if you've done something with it already.

These are recessed-fit as CRC says.

I've also got a 80's steel road bike with non-recessed fit, and been thinking
of converting the brakes. There's always some trouble of old brake pads to
replace.And the classic brakes look nice, but they just don't work !

Although I don't mean to recommend it, but all you have to do is drill the outside
hole (=nut side hole) to make it larger, to fit the recessed nut. 5700s should come
with several nuts included in different sizes so that one of them shall fit any of the
frames or the forks. I imagine your bike is also made of steel, not aluminum or
carbon, it should endure a little modification. I think you might as well check the
width of the fork or the rear mount on your frame, as well as the length of the pivot
bolts of these 5700s before you try. Ask CRC.

Anyway, on your own resposibility.

Good luck.
