    Worth losing 309grams by changing brakes from Deore to BB7?

    Would this be worthwhile? Changing Shimano Deore Hydro's for Avid BB7 mechs, I would lose just over 300grams, and it would possible be worth it!

    I'm confused! BB7's are one of the heaviest brakes out on the market, probably atleast 100grams heavier then your Deores, with less performance (subjective). You may be missing the fact that the Avids are weighed without Levers and cables (which you need to supply yourself). Look into some like a Shimano XTR, Magura marta, Hope mono mini, Formula Oro...

    Woops, they're weighed without it all! Ok then, I dont think i'm even going to consider replacing them at all (see my thread in Brake Time).

    Thanks for that
