Best mechanical brake out there!!
The BB5 from Avid is the best setup I have found so far for mechanical disc brakes, they are easy to adjust and high quality! I have used them on my last two bikes and highly recommend them to anyone looking to upgrade from stock. And Jenson USA has a great price and availability along with quick shipping. If your looking to upgrade or just want reliable stopping power order a set!!

Very good stopping power
Really happy with these. So easy to setup too. These (BB5's) don't come with rotors so be on the know ;) the BB7's do.

Still love the infallible mechanical brake
Four stars only because these are expensive for what they are. Sure, hydraulic clamps harder, but it's hard not to love simplicity, functionality, and easy maintenance of the tried and true mechanical disc brake.
