Rated 5 out of 5 by надежные тормоза отличные тормоза, мертвые, тормозят отлично и просты в установке и настройке. на сколько хватит колодок не знаю.....пока проехал 1500 км и нет видимого износа,удобная регулировка неподвижной колодки. очень рекомендую!!! 11 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Полезная вещь Хорошо смотрятся. Хорошо тормозят, причём тормозное усилие легко варьируется от длительного притормаживания, до полной блокировки. С дисками перед 200 мм., зад 180 мм., при весе 100 кг., при катании с горок, получил полностью управляемое торможение. Обратите внимание, что в комплекте адаптеры IS, как и указано на фото. 04 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Very impressed with performance and value, easy to adjust brake pads. I have bought and fitted the BB7 mech disc brake due to a mechanical defect on my hydraulic brakes (Hope). Very easy to set up and the added advantage of being able to adjust both brake pads. In use I have been very impressed with the stopping power and I would certainly recomend these as a worthy alternative to similarly priced hydraulic brakes based upon the BB7 performance (not quite a subtle as the Hope brakes) and ease of servicing/forseeable running costs. I have not experienced any issues with the quality of workmanship. 03 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Даёшь Механику!!!) Установил передний и задний под 180 мм. Но с Shimano'вскими дисками: SLX (сзади) и XTR (спереди). Тормозные ручки Avid FR-5. Через два дня - колодки как бульдог! Немного нажал - как-будто стоп-кран! Сопки и дропы на склон теперь нипочём!) И вид отличный! Кто-то из новичков даже спросил: "Это чё - гидравлика?") 30 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Самые надежные дисковые тормоза! Тормозят отлично, лучше многих гидравлических! Удобно настраивать, колодок хватает на весь сезон (7500км). Надежная конструкция, высокая ремонтопригодность - при разрыве торса его легко заменить, в отличии от гидравлики. Подходят для дальних путешествий. 29 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The masterpiece of all the mechanical disk brakes I think the noticeable feature of this brake is, of course its outstanding stopping power for a mechanical disk brake, but also the easiness of its adjustment. I once used the low-grade Hayes mechanical disk brakes but it would take me just SO long and SO much to get the gaps of pads right. Each time I removed the wheels and attached them back, I often had to start with resetting the calipers, loosening the fixing bolts all again. Ridiculous I once even gave up on riding on that day, for I ran out of time for it after the brake setting… BB7’s got 2 dials on both sides, which adjust the each of the pads independently. That enables to set the gaps on both sides as the way you want them, wide on the right and narrow on the left or whatever. That also means it doesn’t really matter whereabouts the disk stays as long as it’s somewhere in the middle of the caliper. If the disk stays on the right too much, make more space on the right and it’s all right. If left, then vice versa. So simple and easily workable. Just turn the dials, it’ll be done in 2 minutes. You don’t even need any special tools but your fingers. (The inside larger dial is a little too tight and it’ll be smoother with a torx wrench). Many others have only one dial on either side and if the disk stays too much on the non-dial side, it’s over. You’ll have to start with the caliper setting (or even wiring). This “dual-dial” ALSO means that it enables you to fit the touch of pads’ contact as you desire, so precisely. Along with the setting of brake levers’ reach, you’ll surely have the perfect brake setting of your own. The wider stroke or the closest contact, whatever you like, whenever you remove the wheels out and back. As it’s connected to your fingers physically through the wire, the braking feel is like “as if you were rubbing, scratching or grabbing the disk directly with your fingers”, which you may not find in some hydro-disk brakes. It could be as sensitive as that. You can even drag the disk whilst riding at low speed, which is sometimes helpful when you want to brake very very slightly or shift the centre of the gravity a bit forward, not actually to brake. It’s so controllable that it even feels something like a volume controller of radio, as it’s not just an “on-off switch brake” which you may find in some hydro-brakes. It works precisely just as much as you pull the lever. I also use hydro-disk brakes (Shimano M675), but I actually love this BB7’s touch of lever better, especially the front. You may have to pull (or grab?) the lever quite hard to get the maximum braking power, if you want it as much as hydro-one, especially with the one-finger braker. But if two-finger, no sweat. You’ll have the sensitive feeling and the massive braking at the same time. (I’ m managing one-finger braking somehow…) Probably the best mechanical disk brake ever. Guaranteed. Forget about all those cheap hydro-disks. You won’t regret it, just go for it. 18 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by The only mechanical disk brake to buy I wanted to upgrade my 160mm Tectro mech disk brakes but wasnt sure I was ready to go all the way to hydolics (Plus I had recently bought some Shimano Deore levers that I didnt want to waste). After reading lots of reviews I settled for the BB7's with a 180mm rotor and after a lot of setting up found them to be a vast improvement over the Tectro's. I would say they are as good as many entry level hydro's though no where near as powerful as say Shimano XT hydolics but then I suppose that isnt a fare comparison. I did have issues with the bolt length and tightness when fitting to my Rock Shox fork's direct post mount due to the larger rotor but with a little advice form the CRC tech team was soon resloved. 29 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличные механические тормоза Лучшие механические тормоза. Легкая настройка подвода колодок. Огромная мощность. Использую в комбинации с ручками sd7, которые позволяют отстроить хорошую модуляцию. Проигрывают гидравлике в весе и энергономике, но гораздо надежнее. Лучший выбор для велосипеда "на убой" в туристическом дальнобое или поездок на работу на каждый день 16 September 2013

Answer: 
You would be able to use any Avid rotor with this brake.

Shimano rotors would also be compatible but we would advise that Avid are used.

Answer: 
I've once seen someone's blog about this BB7s and Shimano centre-lock
rotors, which says there seems a little problem sometimes. Altough it will
depend on the types of rotors, but it seems to be the knob of the pad, not the
caliper itself, that touches the tip of the spider arm or the bolt fixing the disk.
Then, the person on the blog seemed to solve the problem by adding a washer
on the fork's (or frame's) mount side to give it a little more reach. This is all
about 160mm rotor, and it wouln't be any problem if it's 180mm or the larger.

Also, I think there shouldn't be any problem with the ordinary six-bolts-fixing
rotors of most brands, as CRC says, because they are all flat. I've only tried
Hayse disks on my BB7s, but it was quite alright.

Hope it will help a bit.

Good luck

I have IS mount on my bike. Do I need to buy any adaptor or something? It's for the rear brake and I'm thinking about the 160mm or maybe 180mm if that makes any difference.
I already have lever, cable and a wheel, what I need to know is if there's anything else I need to purchase to fit this on to my bike.

Answer: 
They are interchangeable and it doesn't matter which side you
put them on, front or rear, they are completely the same.

Be careful with the mount adaptors, post-mount or international,
or the rotors you use, 160 or 180mm. Adaptors all defer.
Ask again here if you're not sure about these by any chance.

Good luck.
