The mechanical standard.
While hydraulics are the running favorite when it comes to disc brakes, mechanical brakes have a few distinct advantages and have a loyal following of their own. Avid BB7s have been the standard in mechanical discs for years. With near-infinite adjustability, unparalleled modulation, and unbeatable value, BB7s have always presented a very good case in the mechanical vs. hydraulic argument.

the best cable disk brake
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
most of my bikes that will accept disk brakes are set up with these. Cheapish, easy to maintain, and really easy to adjust. I took a pair on the 2nd highest paved road in the world and was totally comfortably with my stopping power dropping thousands of meters in just an hour or two. The road version is awesome for cross and touring; just make sure you have the correct brake for the pull you have on your levers.
Fantastic Disc Brakes!
I have a set of these brakes on my GT LTS-3 and they are fantastic. I have ridden at several downhill parks with these brakes and I have never had to worry about my brakes not stopping me. I have used these in the rain/mud and it did not affect their performance. In my opinion these brakes are unbeatable for cable disc brakes.
do these come with the rotor, caliper, cable and lever?
Hi, the rotor and caliper (with pads) are included as they are shown in the image. Lever and cable are not included.
