    Avid BB7 tension adjustment question?

    I have some 2006/07 Avid BB7 brakes and have the tension screw all the way in but need some more tension.....

    Are the springs replaceable in the BB7?

    I checked the Avid website and did a search here and didn't come up w/ anything....

    If your having problems with the pads retracting...you may want to examine your cables and housing.

    Before buying new parts, I'd strip the calliper down and give it a good clean, it might just be clogged up with gunk. I'd also give the brake cable a clean to make sure that it runs smoothly and also make sure that the lever isn't tight and moves easily.
