For lovers of mechanical disc brakes: the Avid BB5 MTB Disc Brake

The BB5 MTB is a no-compromise disc brake for riders looking for a system without hydraulics. The mechanical system is easier to adjust and maintain than a hydraulic disc brake and is also convincing in wet conditions. The set comes without brake levers and cables. These would have to be ordered separately if required. The BB5 MTB is compatible with all Avid brake levers. The brake can be used both as a front wheel brake and as a rear wheel brake.


Application: MTB
Material: aluminium, forged
Mount: post mount (IS with adapter)
Brake Rotor: 6 hole, 1-piece

Tri-Align™ Caliper Positioning System™:
Another original Avid technology that makes your life easier - it's never been easier to fit and adjust a brake. With Avid's Tri-Align™ Caliper Positioning System™, centring the brake caliper on the rotor is literally possible in just a few seconds. Simply loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, press the brake lever and tighten the bolts again. Perfect alignment of the brake caliper in no time at all.

Definitely great brakes-excellent modulation(even if it's wet outdoor),stable work,simple initial adjustment;also requires almost no maintenance.
And the main-NO LEAKS(just install it with quality cables&housings-and best performance is guaranteed)
