    I usually just go with Jagwire pads. Tried and true. You can switch to organic if you're looking for better performance and aren't concerned with shorter pad life.

    As for levers, I'm a fan of the SD-7 levers Avid makes. Which ones are you running currently?

    +1 for Jagwire pads. I find Aztec pads work well too if you are looking for organic pads, I'm a simple fellow when it comes to these kind of things.

    A friend of mine who is a bike tech recommends EBC Golds for all around riding on any brake (he runs older juicy ultimates).

    Straitline makes after market levers for Juicys; if you are looking for a stiffer lever with a bit of bling.

    Nope, your Juicy 7's will be hydraulic and the BB7 is a mechanical disc brake. If your looking for a good replacement lever for the Juicy 7 go with the Straitlines that rufio suggested, used them for a about 5 years now and love em.

    Pad wise I always stuck with the factory pads just because they were easy to find and fairly inexpensive.

    happy trails...

    SwissStop is the best pad money can buy. A true ceramic/organic compound that's quiet and outlasts even Avid's own pads by 2:1. Pricey, but money well spent.
