    avid bb7 mounting help

    when mounting avid bb7 mech disc brakes, do you orient the adapters so the arrow printed on them points in the direction of wheel travel? If i mount the adapters wrong, will it be obvious?( i.e. rotor won't line up with pad.) thanks.

    yes, and yes

    The arrows should be pointing towards the front (which I believe coincides with wheel direction). If you get them wrong, you will know, as the rotor will probably hit the caliper and the wheel won't spon freely. How do I know? Let's just say my signature line used to read "If it's true that we learn from our mistakes, I must be an expert by now."
