Quality looks very good. It was a very easy install although I did have to replace my inner brake cable as the routing is different and my original cable was too short. The housing was fine. Direct bolt on replacement other wise. My very initial impression is that it requires much less pressure on the brake lever (Shimano Ultegra Di2) then the mechanical brake does. I can squeeze the lever to the bar but on a short test ride down the block it had nice modulation and the braking very quickly got better as the pads seated and broke in. It easily skidded the rear tire although my stoker was not aboard. I will have a better evaluation after todays regular ride. This install was utilizing my already used Hope V2 non vented rotor. It has a nice feature for a travel bike in that it has a locking mechanism that can be engaged to prevent it from being actuated while traveling in the case.
