  • Avid BB5 Mechanical Disc Brake

    Although the BB5 disc brake falls within the "entry-level" range of Avid's brakes, there is nothing entry-level about its braking power. This mechanical disc brake comes with an advanced, yet simple to setup alignment system and an adjustment knob to let you dial in your preferred bite point. After one use of this brake caliper you'll be wondering if it's under-priced.

Just loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect caliper alignment - just like that
