Avid BB7 Road Disc Brake with G2 Cleansweep Rotor 2014
A no nonsense mechanical disc brake that's perfect for commuting or cyclocross.
The BB7 Road mechanical disc brake has smooth, powerful braking performance that’s simple to set up and easy to adjust. Bad weather or rough roads? Not even a factor with BB7’s reliable mechanical performance.
Just replaced the avid BB5 road brade with these on my Salsa Vaya touring / commuting bike and couldn't be happier. I have avid mechanical discs on 4 of my bikes (the Salsa I mentioned, and 3 mountain bikes) and wouldn't think of using anything else. The simplicity of setup and maintenance of these brakes, combined with the stopping power has never let me down. The added adjustability of these over the BB5 is totally worth the extra money. The BB5s only allow you to adjust one side of the caliper/pads while these allow you set and adjust both sides for a perfect setup. This road version is just like the mountain version except being for road brake levers which is a bit shorter pull. I would recommend these for any touring / commuting / cycloscross frame you have that takes discs.
