    And am excited!

    The Tektro's that came with my Hardrock just don't want to work no matter what I try, I want to leave rubber on the damn ground!

    I was initially going to go BB5, but after reading a lot of peoples views on both I decided they're worth the extra 30 or so bucks :D

    So, who else here has BB7s?

    Good choice, theyre good brakes. I used to have them. My new bike came with Juicies that I don't like as much.

    My buddy had a BB7 for a while, that was the first bike I ever raced on as a matter of fact. Fun bike, but damn that wheelbase felt long when it was compressed. Not a bike that, for me, really liked leaving the ground.

    Haha oops. Pffft 3k. At least it probably comes with nice brakes.
    I had to skip a few fun looking hills on a ride today, first trail and no brakes, no thank you.

    Nobody rocks BB7's. They may have them, but they don't rock them....

    Now consider doing that with Duane Johnson on Alcatraz island. Rocking the rock on the rock with the rock while I rock?

    So they've arrived! Too bad I left for work before they did. Now I don't feel like doing anything.

    I liked my bb7's but I hated having to adjust them all the time. I like hydraulic brakes because they're pretty much set and forget which is how I like my bike components. Also, I heard bb7's have more modulation if you ride with glitter on your balls.
