Well I guess we will know how good the brakes are.  Just ordered three sets for two 2019 minis and a new wagon.

Great, let us know how it goes and if they should be added to the recommended accessories thread. Are you doing the install yourself?

The install of the M-1 hydraulic brake units from BOLTON BIKES was really easy since they use the original brake levers, discs and cables. They are smoother since both pads move in instead of only one moving pad on the standard Tektro brake units. They are not stronger since the standard units can lock the wheels pretty easy. These are not necessary but are a nice upgrade.  My bike is quieter when braking and has a little smoother brake action.  Since I am a fool for upgrades I recommend this one.  No real downside except for the $150.00 expense. Also no bleeding or maintenance is needed except for a future pad change and they use easy to get Shimano brake pads.  Bolton bikes has a nice video of the install procedure.

Thanks for sharing. I guess I wasn't aware you could use the same cables? And no maintenance? I thought with hydraulic brakes they would at some point need the lines bled. If you have some I'd be curious to see some pictures. Appreciate the balanced review!

Here is the video for those interested. I have not seen anything like this before. Given this is an easy upgrade that most people could DIY I'm going to add it to my list of accessories page here: https://www.radowners.com/index.php/topic,104.0.html

I think the only consideration is the steep price, but something to keep an eye on. One of my minor pain points is adjusting the brakes on my RadWagon. It just takes some patience but it seems like these would be much easier to adjust to get rid of any rubbing.
