Front Inter-M Brake System
If the brake is used frequently, the area around the
brake may become hot. Do not touch the area around
the brake for at least 30 minutes after you finish riding
the bicycle.
8.
If the brake cable becomes rusted, braking performance
will suffer. If this happens, replace the brake cable with
a genuine Shimano brake cable and re-check the
braking performance.
9.
The BR-IM75-F front brake unit and HB-IM70 front hub
unit should never be disassembled. If they are
disassembled, malfunctions and damage to the front
brake unit and front hub unit could result.

The front Inter-M brake system should only be installed
to the left side of a bicycle which is 26" or larger. If it is
used on a bicycle which is smaller than 26", the braking
force may be too great, which could cause accidents.
In order to get the best performance from the Shimano
front Inter-M brake, be sure to use Shimano brakes
cables and brake levers as a set.
(Refer to the product line-up.)
The amount of movement of the inner cable must
be 14.5 mm or more when the brake lever is
depressed. If it is less than 14.5 mm, braking
performance will suffer, and the brakes may fail to
work.

To check tha amount of looseness in the head parts,
grasp the middle of the handlebar and one of the front
forks as shown in the illustration, and then move the head
parts back and forth in the directions indicated by the
arrows.
Moreover, because the brakes give a small amount of
play if you apply the brakes fully and shake the wheel as
described above, this will make it more difficult to check
the looseness in the head parts.

If you apply the front Inter-M brake strongly while the

Note:
RELE
When using the Shimano Inter-M brake system, avoid
continuous application of the brakes when riding down
long slopes, as this will cause the internal brake parts to
become very hot, and this may weaken braking
performance. It may also cause a reduction in the
amount of brake grease inside the brake, and this can
lead to problems such as abnormally sudden braking.
The design of the Shimano Inter-M brake system has
been carried out based on standards such as ISO 4210
and DIN 79100-2.
These standards specify the performance for an overall
weight of 100 kg. If the overall weight exceeds 100 kg,
the braking force provided by the system may be
insufficient for correct braking, and durability of the
system may also be reduced.
The front Inter-M brake has a built-in power modulator
which controls the braking force applied to the hub. Noise
is generated by the operation of the power modulator
when the brake is applied, but this is not a sign of a
malfunction.

The front Inter-M brake is different from conventional

Use a wheel with 3x or 4x spoke lacing. Wheels with
radial lacing cannot be used because the spokes and the

If any of the following occur while using the brakes, stop
riding immediately and ask the place of purchase to
carry out inspection and repairs.
1) If abnormal noise is heard when the brakes are
applied
2) If braking force is abnormally strong
3) If braking force is abnormally weak
In the case of 1) and 2), the cause might be not enough

Check that the hub axle is touching the back of the fork
end, and that the wheel is firmly secured to the frame

properly, it may come off the frame, which could result in
serious accidents when riding.

If using the BR-IM75-F in combination with a suspension
fork, care must be taken when selecting the suspension
fork to use. Please consult with the place of purchase or
the bicycle manufacturer. If the incorrect type of
suspension fork is selected, it could cause the suspension
fork to not function properly because of overheating
during braking or lack of strength in the fork, which could
result in an accident.
Check that the front brake unit is firmly secured to the
hub body with the brake unit fixing nut.

– To avoid serious injuries:
It is important to completely understand the operation of
your bicycle's brake system. Improper use of your
bicycle's brake system may result in a loss of control or
an accident, which could lead to severe injury.
Because each bicycle may handle differently, be sure to
learn the proper braking technique (including brake lever
pressure and bicycle control characteristics) and
operation of your bicycle. This can be done by consulting
your professional bicycle dealer and the bicycle's owners
manual, and by practicing your riding and braking
technique.
