What is the difference between avid bb7 oem and aftermarket brakes? I was visiting an on-line retailer and they sell both. The oem are $10 cheaper. Being oem does that just mean they are probably new bike take-off and you don't get a pretty new box with instructions?

You got it. OEM = no packaging and no torx wrench for the rotor bolts. You can download the instructions from the SRAM web site.

Make sure the "front" caliper has the IS mount. The mount will cost you $10 if you need it.
