The BB7 is a simple cable-actuated brake that is for use with road levers only. Early mechanical disc brakes were heavy and mostly inefficient; not so the BB7. At 329g per calliper they’re about the lightest available, and with dial in brake pad positioning you can set rotor clearance in a matter of seconds. Which is useful, as you will need to do this regularly as the pads wear out.

Uses G2 Cleansweep rotors.
