    What is considered a good price for BB7's?

    I've found a set on ebay for $97 shipped. Is this a decent price or will there probably be some end of season sales coming up?

    About $50/wheel minus levers seems to be the going rate.

    Great brakes by the way, I've got them on 3 bikes and love 'em. Not as powerful as hyrdo's but way easier to adjust than most hydros and way cheaper, too.

    Bluesky seems to have the best deal with their OEM combo kits but if you can afford it I'd get hydros. Love one finger braking my shimano slx and XTs (have both on two different bikes) afford me so I can keep my white knuckle grip on the handlebar where they belong and not the brake levers.

    I'm just upgrading my Avalanche 3.0, i don't think it merits hydros. I want simple+relatively cheap anyways. just grabbed a Rockshox Recon Silver for it too, this will be the best fork i've ever rode

    Gotcha, well in that case you can't go wrong with a set of tried and true bb7s.

    I have seen BB-7's sold just as calipers or as "kits"(calipers, cables, disks, and levers). Make sue you know what is included. Also, some sites sell older versions of the same caliper-different finish. YMMV!

    I purchased the brakes and rotors from this ebay seller and am happy with the product and service. You could get all the parts for the complete kit from him for about $134 vs $128 at bluesky. The brakes from ebay are 2012 vs 2011 at bluesky.

    Price Point has the 2011's for $50 and the 2012's for $78. I don't think there's much change in the last 2 years anyway.

    Sounds about right for last year's model which never seems to change anyway.

    BB7 are the same since 2008. And I got a set of 2 calipers with adaptors, 2 HS1 160mm rotor for $75 shipped from eBay. Lots of good deal from the Chinese over there. Just make sure it includes everything like the pads, bolts and adaptors before you buy
