Daft question.....Are they identical brakes for both front and rear, or are there a set for front and rear?

I've got one set/pair but - obviously - need another set for a full bikes worth and wondered if they the same.

Cheers.....

You mean the older/wider triangular type, right? MT60/62 and M730/732 are all the same shape, only differences are the bolts.

The later "low profile" M650/M651/M734 instructions only say use a longer straddle cable on the back.

Think it's a myth and only M900 had different sizes front/back.

Hi Dossa,

I have the manual of the 732 brakes if that can help you.

They are the same. If you use the shimano stradle wire it has two nipples on it, one for front, one for rear. Some of the best brakes around IMO

You'll also need to swap the brake pads over.
