    Just upgraded from Avid SD-7's to 06 BB7 disc's! Anything I should know before...

    installing on my bike? I really loved the Single Digit 7's I've had for the past 5 years. But I've been eyeing the BB7 for a while and decided it's time to upgrade since I'm buying new wheels. I know that I can use them with my Speed Dial levers (why I bought them in the first place) but I was wondering if there are any other things I need to look out for when installing so I'll be ready to ride this weekend.

    I've been down for a week and I'm getting bored with the road bike.

    I recommend you go with full housing...it will help it retain the nice new-cable-lever- feel for a longer time..

    Check...whether there is disk mount on your frame and fork.

    Make sure that the pads are "bedded in". It might take a couple of downhill runs to get the brakes to their full potential, so dont be surprised if you do not have mind blowing power during the first couple of rides.

    Thanx because that's the first thing that I noticed. Stopping is worse that V's

    I don't have them fully dialed in yet but the stopping power seemed to suck compared to my V's. I'll give it a while.

    Once they break in, you'll feel the power and wonder why you didn't convert sooner.
