I bought a Koga Globetraveller that came with XT V brakes with the parallelogram shoe mounts. They squealed so much I stopped riding the bike. I tried different types of grease. Different types of shoes. Nothing worked. Lately, Shimano designers seem to have confused complexity with sophistication. I'm very impressed with everything I have bought from Sram/Avid. These brakes, some Attack 9 speed grip shifts and chains that I can repeatedly remove and clean without buying riveted master links.
Sram/Avid seems to understand the importance of simplicity, serviceability and realized, rather than rationalized, performance improvements.

I felt that I was missing out by always buying cheaper V-brakes. Honestly, the Shimano Alivio BR-T4000 brakes are every bit as quality in my experience, and in fact I prefer those even if both were priced the same. I'm not knocking these brakes, just saying that they cost more than twice as much and do not deliver any extra value in my opinion. Recommended if you are not cost-conscience, otherwise get the Shimano brakes.

Still the best mechanical brakes on the market

    Comments about Avid Single Digit 7 Brake:

    I'm not as happy with Avid products since they became a member of the SRAM family but, they're still top quality. The instructions have been hard to find/figure out since the SRAM take-over but, the design makes it pretty easy to figure out installation. When it comes to rim brakes or mechanical discs - AVID is the best choice for the money.

                Comments about Avid Single Digit 7 Brake:

                Had Shimano V's they squealed like a stuck pig, returned them, the combo of SD7 levers and brakes is awesome. Once you set them up just forget about them and ride, got the set up on 3 bikes, one is a mix of the BB7 disc up front and the SD7 in the back with SD7 levers. Any bike I buy I just automatically change the brake lever set up to these baby's.
                The setup is on 2 Mt. bikes and a commuter bike, and I'm going to put them on a friends Mt bike.
                Not trying to sound one sided but I can't find anything bad to say about them.

                  Great product but not as simple to install as they look. There is a spacer chart with the instructions for different widths. It should be very simple but the pads are tough to get tight once you remove spacers.

                  Once on the bike they're great. Real intense stopping power. Great for commuting and casual bikes.

                      • Q:

                        I have an older Giant Iguana with cantilever brakes that I want to upgrade. I have a mounting hole on the top fonmy fork and best I can measure is 3.5" from center of hole to center of rim. Will these or any v-brake system fit? How do they mount? Can't really tell by the pic. Thanks

                        • A:

                          They mount on the same brake boss that your canti's use, so yes they would fit. Just make sure you still have enough tire clearance, as canti's typically allow for a wider tire.
