There seems to be a $10.00 difference in price between the two brake sets. On the surface, changing brake calipers does not seem to be too challenging. Are there any hidden surprises, or is it a piece of cake....Tim

I suspect it is the change to the new black color.

I think most people should be able to change their own calipers. The only non-obvious thing is the little adjusting screw to center the brakes.
