    Motobecane 700 HT - Avid BB5 vs Tektro Aquila

    Hey guys,

    I just bought a Motobecane 700 HT that shipped to me with Avid BB5's, but it was supposed to have Tektro Aquila. The shop said the BB5 was actually an upgrade, but he would give me the Aquilas if I wanted.

    Which should I go with?

    I searched the forums but never saw this question answered definitively...

    Stay with bb5, they are far better. I have them on my Haro Mary and they are super smooth with great stopping power. Tektro are good brakes but not so smooth and powerful.
