Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by surprising good They came on bike I bought new and I was expecting to bin them. But no chance after a years worth of abuse and neglect in very muddy conditions there doing a great job and still on the original pads to. Loads of bite. Only thing I need to do is change the cables now there starting to drag. Makes me wonder why I bother with hydraulics on my other bike sometimes 21 February 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good the work amazing when u get them wait a week they start to ge looser u just tighten everything up and it works fine. adjust your wheel so the pads dont rub 07 August 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by ok the brakes where amazing for the first couple of weeks but the pads u get on them are easily worn out . make sure u dont get oil on your disc sqeeeeeks like """"""*** . dont bue bb5 buy bb7 or hydrulic 19 July 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Front or Rear...? When i bought a pair of BB7 brakes they arrived boxed with various adapters for front and rear fitting..this pair of BB5's arrived in polythene bags both with rear fitting adapters.So not really a pair then...and so after my complaint was ignored i went to the expense of having to buy a front adapter so i could have brakes on my bike. Are chain reaction losing that edge....? 10 June 2012
