"bb7 is a better brake, 160mm stronger/better modulation.  Can't hurt"

Until recently, my Felt F65x's been sporting a set of stock BB5s, but a friend of mine decided to send me his old BB7s. I use this bike mostly for gravel grinding and urban commuting, so no racing yet.Now the front brake, I had no problem swapping out: both were 160mm, and the front was always annoying me anyway because BB5s are a PITA to adjust. However, the rear brake is a 140mm, which means I'd have to get a new rotor if I wanted to go from a BB5 to a BB7.  This is the first bike with disc…See More

"Thanks again Kris...I can certainly quickly hop on with a pedal and as I'll likely be in the back, I am sure the threat is low to others."

Hi Greg,

It's a white bike with black / red accents.  I'm the original owner.  I think it's a 2009. It's pretty light; about 18-19 pounds.  I have a set of Salsa Cowbell bars on it (40cm). The steerer tube hasn't been cut excessively.  FSA Cranks 36/46 -- has 11/25 cassette on it. Not sure what else you'd like to know.  It'd be a nice starter CX bike for someone.
