        Super dependable brakes that you can relay on for years. They may not have quite the stopping power of hydraulic brakes, but they are cheaper and you don't have to mess with brake fluids. Great option for long bikepacking trips.

            I am an avid mountain bike rider in Mammoth Ca. lots of nice bike parks and trails.
            I replaced my avid bb5 with the avid bb7 front and rear. The install was easy, online instructions were valuable.
            It took few runs down hill to quiet braks down, great stopping power.
            My only concern is they are pretty noisey hoping they will quiet down with time.

            I was sick of doing maintenance on my old hydraulic brakes, so I decided to switch over to the bb7's, because they're affordable, easy to install, require very little maintenance, and are easy to adjust.

            I think they're quite easy to tweak just the way you want them, and I've gotten them to be just as responsive, if not more so, than some hydraulic brakes I've owned.

            Riding approx. 22 to 25 miles 5 times a week on the road and in parks and preservatives. very happy with this break. will change my rear to bb7 too. Only little thing: organic brake pads are better than the metallic ones. my advice to other bikers: change to avid bb7. then you have finally a dependable and powerful brake with an easy installation and service and without spending a ton of money

              Great price. The kit came with all the necessary brackets and hardware. I installed this on the front. Pretty basic install even though the instructions and bracket sheet are poor. But don't follow the instructions on pad adjustment. Experiment with your own specific braking preference. The metallic pads howled like crazy. So the next day I purchased some Avid organic pads and they are way better and no noise and easier to bed and adjust. The metallic pads stink. The hardware bag had 2 small rubber o rings. Does anyone know what these are for?
