Avid BB7 Road Mechanical Disc Brake Reviews


AVID BB7 ROAD DISC BRAKE 160MM
Name:
Date:

These are great brakes that work properly with road levers. The kit includes the caliper rotor fitting hardware and Avid inline cable adjusters. Getting the cable runs between the lever and the caliper exactly right significantly increases the brake performance and feel. The brakes need some use and adjustment to get the best out of them. The cables will stretch and the pads will bed in to the rotor. The brakes are effective when first fitted after 200 miles they totally DIALLED!

Stopping power!

Switched from feeble tektro discs to these on my cross bike The most powerful brake I've used with drop bar levers. I run basic full length cable housing to the rear brake and it is a bit squashy so you might like to experiment with good quality compression-less housing.

The best money can buy

If you need discs for road/cyclocross look no further. These are to my knowledge the only fully adjustable brakes you can buy and the ease of use is totally worth it. Best used descending Pyreneean cols with 30kgs of luggage.

Very Good

These are great once theyve been bedded in which take a couple hundred miles. The stopping power is great but can be a little noisy in the wet. A little copper grease can sort this out though.

Great brakes

Ive got these on two bikes. My race cx and my commuter. They have been faultless. Easy to set up and adjust to keep working while in use. They are much more powerful than any rim brakes Ive used meaning a lighter touch is required. Especially good for the three peaks. Theyve survived two seasons of very muddy cross and 12 months of commuting and still work well. Perhaps not as powerful as a good set of hydraulics but more than good enough for my uses.
