        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.

          Comments about Avid Single Digit 7 Brake:

          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.

                Comments about Avid Single Digit 7 Brake:

                Quite simply this is an amazing value for a linear-pull/V-brake. When paired with Avid's Speed Dial brake lever, you have an incredible combination. I also run these on a mountain bike with a drop handlebar and they work well with Dia-Compe 287V aero brake levers.

                Any complaints about brake power fading under hard braking or noisy braking can be easily addressed by changing brake pads to superior Kool-Stop pads. Proper set-up (with a little bit of toe-in) is also important.

                Unless you're running Shimano XT/XTR V-Brakes, these are an incredible braking upgrade.

                I've used these on my single speed and they are great brakes. They stop great and were extremely easy to set up. The spring is strong and makes them have a good solid feel. They do tend to lose a little bit of power in mud and when wet but not much (and is expected as they are rim brakes), but it's not really noticeable. I'd definitely buy them again if I was building up another v-brake bike.

                Non-nonsense brakes. Simple and durable, these were a great upgrade to my commuter.

                They lack the power of my older XTR v-brakes, but they're substantially less expensive.
