Got a Cannondale Bad Boy 5 that comes with Shimano M446 hydraulic brakes. I have a set of new Shimano Deore M596 hydraulic brakes. The calipers look almost identical but the levers between the two are noticeable different. For one, the Deore has the hinge clamp and the levers are jutted forward. I got the Deore around April in anticipation of getting the Bad Boy 9 with cheap Tektro mechs. I ended up with the BB5, so now I'm deciding if I should swap out the M446 for Deore M596. I guess I want to know is the swap worth the time and effort? The M446 seems to be good, and I don't want to mess the adjustment up if putting in the Deore isn't going to make much of a difference.
How easy is it to install Shimano hydros and adjust them?
