    BBB rotor and pads

    I have an Avid BB7 with 160mm rotor.

    I would like to change the pad, and a bigger, 180mm rotor.

    Is there any experience with the BBB pads and rotor?
    They are cheaper then the avid parts, but are they good enough? I don't want to buy some crap ...
    Generally the BBB parts are good, but I didn't find any reviews.

    You would probably be fine.

    Keep in mind you will need a new adapter for the larger rotor. And also that a 180mm rotor in front is smaller then the 185mm Avid rotors (you could use a 160mm REAR adapter though in the front - I've heard this works).

    Yes, I know that. There are fine BBB adapters for their rotors (and the shimano has the same parts).

    My only concern is the quality issue. I dont want to make a poor brake, because I use poor parts...
