There's power in simplicity. For years now, ball bearing disc brakes have been a favorite among riders who want control, durability, dependability and piece-of-cake adjusting. BB's adjustment knobs make quick work out of setting the perfect distance between the pads and rotor, as well as adjusting for pad wear. This is something you just can't do with hydraulic brakes. And when you run ball bearing disc brakes, you can match them with Avid`s Speed Dial® levers for sweet, adjustable modulation.
Ball Bearing 7 - The mechanical advantage is yours.
With gobs of beautifully modulated power and intuitive easy-to-use adjustability, the BB7s set the standard in the realm of mechanical disc brakes. Inboard and outboard adjustor knobs, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System, and integrated Cable Stop spring tension adjustment ensures that our standard is everyone else's goal.
Tri-Align™ Caliper Positioning System™
Another original Avid technology making your life better-there's never been an easier brake to install and adjust. With Avid's Tri-Align™Caliper Positioning System™, aligning the caliper to the rotor literally takes seconds. Just loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect caliper alignment-just like that.
The caliper can be used for both as front- or rear brake! The brake is compatible with all V-brake levers. Perfect functionality is ensured by using Avid Speed Dial levers for sweet, adjustable modulation to match your riding style.
Please pay attention to the max. permitted disc diameter depending on your fork and frame!
