    Ebay BB7s?...

    I'm building up a new commuter and want to go with Avid BB7s. The auctions I have been watching have been running upwards of $80 for a complete set (rotors, calipers, hardware) whether the set is new or used. Would I be wise to wait until after Christmas with the hope that prices may dip with increased supply (people swapping out their old discs for what Santa brought) or is this pretty much the going rate? I have not been watching component prices over the past couple years so I'm not sure how holiday shopping may be affecting the prices I see.

    Thanks in advance!

    $80 a set with shipping included is pretty much the best I've seen on ebay, and sometimes you can even get the larger rotors at this pricepoint. I don't know if you'll see much difference due to xmas shopping tho...

    That is a pretty good price. 2 years ago I picked up my set of BB7s with 185 rotors F/R for $125 shipped.

    If you are talking about two wheels worth, it is a good deal. You you are looking at used brakes remember that you will likely need to replace the pads soon--if not right away--at $15-20/wheel.

    That was the reason I was asking; I've been seeing them listed NEW at online stores (e.g. Pricepoint) then see them for the same price at Ebay, probably not the same model year but 08/09/10 seem to be very similar. Thanks for the replies!

    The only difference between the '08 and the '09/'10 is the latter include the brackets for front and rear use. With the '08 you have to get the front or rear package.
