    Chance at "deal" on BB5s...should I go for it?

    I have a shot at a set of BB5s, NIB, for $70 to my door. Should I bite?

    BB7's are usually only $100-110 on eBay, NIB. So it's up to you. BB7's are easier to adjust and setup, and you'll have to play with the brakes as the pads wear.

    Thanks for the heads-up on the eBay BB7s. For $30-$40 more I'd rather have the inboard/outbard adjusters than just inboard.

    In fact, one quick ebay search later netted me a set of BB7s for $110 to my door. Again, thanks for the heads-up =)

    Hopefully that is for two wheels worth. Jenson has new '08 BB7s for $60-68/per wheel

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
