    yep... Just got my new 203mm MTB BB7 today and damn ! Those are wonder... For the price and the design, you just can't stop braggin' about them. Considering that I payed $47 for a 203mm MTB BB7, I think thats worth the time to show off a little :D See ya back on trail with your $250 Magura...

    Hi all, I have just made my account to ask this question but after a quick look around I may be hooked :) Ok, so this is kind of hard to explain. I recently acquired a 2005 Specialized Hardrock in brand new condition. Too avoid confusion, the short story is my parents got two of these with a...

    I check around for this mainly on google but did not come up with anything like this issue. So I got some used BB7s and some news organic avid pads for them (pads are for bb7/juicy) well installing them the new pads just will not go in at all. The only way I have found them to go in until they...

    Are there any spacing or other issues with BB7 203mm with Larry/Endo wheels? Any other mechanical disc brakes that should be considered?

    Ever typed 'BB7' into the search box and got: And then you've typed 'Avid BB7' into the search box and got a whole lot of threads that have nothing to do with BB7's. I have the solution to the problem. Click HERE to view threads on BB7's. By simply adding BB7 to a BB7 thread's 'tag' it...

    Guys- I know, I know, hydros are better, especially if you are doing downhills long enough to wear pads... But out of a desire to tinker, I was thinking of how to get really everything out of a set of BB7's, in terms of controllable power and weight reductions. I was wondering what you all...

    Hello folks, sorry if my question appears idiotic but i am confused after reading the review of 2010 Avid BB7 which states that the BB7 made in 2010 are only compatible with Avid brake pads (http://www.mtbr.com/cat/brakes/disc-brake-system/avid/bb7-mechanical-disc-brake/PRD_414628_1507crx.aspx)...

    I have BB7's on my mtn and cross bike. I can absolutely waste a set of pads in a single race, when the conditions are bad. Extreme wet-sandy-silty conditions. Completely lost me brakes on a mtb race a couple of years back. Today on the cyclocross bike-a 30 mile multi surface race-doing quick...

    I was just wondering if anyone knew why it seems like my BB7's are constantly changing their adjustment. What I mean by this is it seems like some days that when I slowly roll my bike around when moving it the brakes will lightly squeal, and other days iit seems like they are adjusted perfect...

    I just finished up building a new commuter/urban bike with 700C disc wheels, a rigid fork, and Avid BB7s with 160mm Roundagons. The brakes perform very well since they have been broken in, and feel great..... However, when applying the front brake by itself, I am getting a sort of "shudder"...

    Hello all, I wonder if someone could assist please... Can a Shimano 180mm Front Post to IS Mount Adaptor be used with an Avid BB7 caliper and will it still allow for the Avid CPS adjustment to be made? Many thanks Russ (usr33t)

    So I have a giant xtc ds1 about 10 years old. It came with Hayes hydros on it and have served me well. The front brake is still pretty good(doesn't really lock up but I'd never need to to really). The rear brake is barley there. It was just bleed and tuned but when riding I get a spongy lever...

    I currently have 160mm rotors on front and 140mm on rear and have messed up hydraulic disc brakes... I want to get the avid bb7s as a replacement. I wonder if I will get good enough performance off the 160/140 combo with the new mechanicals? If not, what combo would be good? will I need...

    What material are the pads that come standard on a new set of BB7s? Just wondering before replacing with metallc pads.

    When I was building my bike up I decided to stick with mechanicals so I ordered a set of BB7's. While I waited I put a Tektro Aquila on the rear. The Aquila worked great and had strong stopping force. When my BB7's finally arrived I made the swap and dialed it in. Now the braking force is lousy...

    Will it work? Short story... have a mountain bike with BB7 MTB setup, but considering upgrading to hydraulic if I can make this work. I want to throw my BB7s on a commuter mtb I am building with drop bars. I don't need amazing modulation for this purpose (although I want it if possible) but...

    I'm looking to upgrade by brakes to BB7's with SD7 levers, and I think I can save some money if I buy them online. I've read a lot about them, and they seem really hard to get set up right. I don't have much experience with upgrading my bike, but I want to start doing upgrades myself so I know...
