Fitting Shimano BR 450 Brakes - Which is front/rear?
edited April 2012
I've just received a pair of these in the post, but they look identical! Does it matter which goes on the front/rear?
The only mark I can see is one says HG and one says AI?
Shimano Tech Docs
, they appear to be identical units, just with different (length) bolts depending on whether they've fitted through the fork (long) or the bridge between the rear stays (short).
Thanks - obvious now you've said it!
They are the same. The only brakes I know of that are not are Campagnolo diferential brakes. - Dual piv front single rear.
