    BB7 weight

    I am looking to build up a low maintenance bike that I can also race. I was thinking about a Niner MCR 9 w/steel rigid fork and 1x9 drive train. I have a set of El Camino brakes that I could use but I was thinking of switching to a set of BB7s for simplicity. The reviews are good but people say one of the draw backs of the BB7s is the weight. However when I look up the weight on various sites they appear lighter than most hydro set ups. Plus they are a ton cheaper.
    Low weight and cheap? Am I missing something?
