- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Size Bought: R7025
I have a Specialized Ruby Elite 2017. It came with mechanical disc brakes. The levers were too hard to reach from hoods but just got use to it and was disappointed with disc brakes at that point.. I am 5 ft tall woman and was looking for levers for Small Hand Lever/Shifter. The Shimano 105 R7025 (make sure it is R7025) Hydraulic disc with new rotors. Amazing I can use on finger on the pull of brakes from the hoods and the shifting is better than my previous 105 mechanical disc brakes. You can adjust the lever in even more up to 8 clicks with a 2.5 mm hex on the side of the hood. no shim needed any more. This is what I thought I was getting with the other brakes. No way. Finally something for a woman's reach. The cost was worth it I love my bike's comfort in handling. You don't have to replace the rotors but I went for the full Ice technology, which you can read about on your own.
