Great stopping power compared to stock
Never did like the stock Shimano M416 disc brakes that came on my Trek Valencia hybrid. The BB7 180mm kit was just the ticket. The rotors barely fit on my bike--make sure you measure! Used Origin8 centerlock adapters that worked well. Install was easy although I watched the Avid video on youtube rather than follow the instructions which I found difficult to follow. Even though the ordering dropdown says "front", they had the two different IS adapters that I needed for front and back. Also, my BB7's were stamped 2013 on the calipers and the box--not 2011?!?! Thank you JensonUSA!

Almost as good as my hydraulic brakes!
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.

What size adapter do you use for rear 180 mm rotor?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I used the one supplied in the package. It came with 2 or 3 adapters fitted for your specific bike. It will be clear which to use by trial and error. YouTube helps as well
