Hello,

I'm sorry if this question has been asked and answered before (I did a "M950 vs M951 search" and the only thing that came up was about crankshafts), but can anyone out there tell me if/what the difference(s) is/are between the M950 and M951 V-Brakes?

Thanks in advance.

The M950 are the original parallel push XTR design that developed free play in the upper pivot linkage. Shimano subsequently sold a rebuild kit that comprised of a set of shims.

The M951 is a virtually identical design, except that there is a coil spring on the upper pivot, which prevents the linkage from rattling if the link developed free play.
