    BB7 Adapter Rub

    I recently installed some bb7 brakes on the back of the bike with 160mm rotors. Anyhow, the rotor rubs on the adapter. Is there anything I did wrong? If so how can I correct this? Thanks.



    Brake assembly slightly angled towards the tire.



    Anything wrong with how I set it up?

    It looks like the brake calliper is rubbing on the rotor not the the adapter, try loosening the brake calliper and moving it outwards away from the rotor.
    If it still rubs after you do that you could put a washer on the axle so that it sits between hub and the drop out.

    Could just be the photo but that drive side dropout without the wheel inserted looks way tweaked. Your hub axle locknut spacing consistent with your dropout width?

    Here's a BB5/BB7 Installation and Set Up Guide that might be worth looking at:
