    BB7 install

    Total noob question here so don't crucify me..

    New bike came with Tektro Novelas and I'm wanting to add the BB7's based on price and reviews. Looking at them they seem to mount parallel to the post mount on the fork instead of perpendicular. Is there something I'm not seeing correctly? or are they only compatible with specific form tubes? Is there a specific model/I should be looking for so they bolt straight on?

    BB7's are only available as a Post Mount (PM) caliper.
