I have a 2012 Specialized Tricross Elite Disc on layaway at my LBS. The bike comes with Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes, but I've recently read a lot of horror stories about BB5's (adjustment issues,…Continue

I have BB7's and they work great and are easy to tune

Just ordered up some BB7's to replace the 5's... I'll report back on it....

Anyone here have/used/fondled the new Hayes offering yet?

I would go with the BB& if you want the ability to tune the brakes easily...BB%'s suck sometimes

I've been riding an Airborne Delta for over a year now and it's time for a few upgrades... I was thinking about BB7 (over the 5's) but I didn't think it would be really worth it... I wonder how the weight of  Shimano's new discs compare and whether that might be worth it....

Just got my new Felt F65x. Rode Sat and Sun on gravel. 90 mi total. What a great bike for the money. If you're looking for a cost-effective way to get into CX discs this is it. Great racing geometry, wonderful carbon fork, stiff BB30 bottom bracket. Overall great pkg. 20.5lbs with pedals and Garmin 800. Going to throw Stans tubeless 340s on next week. BB5 up front was a little tricky to get to run silently, but overall great braking and modulation.

Hey Alex. I have a new Kona Major One. I'd be interested in the disc adapter if you think it'll fit on that frame. I think it's similar to the Jake's.
