Go for the juicy! The bb7 are real easy to work with and work generaly well, but over the long haul having a hydrolic brake is a way nicer riding experience.

Definitely the Juicies. My last bike had BB7's, and the new one has Juicy 5's, and I would choose the Juicies every time now. Easier to set up and once done, you don't need to make any adjustments. Easier to get more stopping power with only 1 finger too.

i've been a loooooong time lover of the BB-7 stuff. but.....i just swapped one bike over to the juicy -5 stuff, with similar rotor sizes. wow. liked it enough that i'm swapping over the other bike as well. selling the old mech stuff to help finance the dealio.

and the juicy-5 is not even the high end setup. feels incredible, compared to the bb-7. and i was very particular about my mech setup. even with that, the hydros just felt better.

same here

I went through the same thing I thought the bb7 are the bomb untill i switched to juicy seven, they are great have more power and much more control and a much better lever one finger for hours, thats cool.
