    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Tektro Auriga Pro or Avid BB7?

    I've already read the thread "Tektro Auriga Comp vs Avid BB7". Now I would like to compare the BB7(the best mechanical DB) with the Tektro Auriga Pro.




    This is a new product from Tektro and the only review I could find is from bikeradar.com

    I think the only reason the product didn't get the 5 star rating is the price. Found a bike shop selling them for the same price! If you were to choose,which of the two disc brakes would you get? Actually, for the BB7 to work perfectly, I have to buy the SD7 lever which is an extra cost which will make the BB7 a little costlier.

    I have a new GT Force and they have the Pro's on them. They seem to be fine but need bled. I wish they had some modulation.

    Is the Pro supposed to be a step up from the comp?

    They are a step higher than the comp. Already bought the brakes and based my judgment on the fact that a German mountain bike magazine tested this brakes along with avid, hayes, magura, shimano, etc. and it gave this brakes a good result. Hereís the result.

    Avid Elixir CR = very good/very good/very good
    Formula R1 = very good/very good/-
    FRM DBR 250 = weak/-/-
    Funn Drop In = -/good/good
    Hayes Stroker Ace = -/very good/very good
    Hayes Stroker Gram = not possible to test/weak/weak
    Hope Tech X2 = good/very good/-
    Magura Julie HP = good/good/very good
    Magura Marta SL = very good/very good/very good
    Shimano Saint = -/very good/super
    Tektro Auriga Pro = good/good/very good

    Here are the weights of the brakes:

    Avid Elixir CR = 376/442/475
    Formula R1 = 277/322/-
    FRM DBR 250 = 262/
    Funn Drop In = -/535/558
    Hayes Stroker Ace = -/431/555
    Hayes Stroker Gram = 359/412/478
    Hope Tech X2 = 368/465/-
    Magura Julie HP = 435/493/555
    Magura Marta SL = 368/426/472
    Shimano Saint = -/544/585
    Tektro Auriga Pro = 441/506/535

    Havenít tried the brakes yet, still waiting for other parts to arrive. This is my first disc brake and I hope I made the right choice...
