How to setup the Avid BB7 Common issues There are a couple of common issues with the BB7 that crop up in many of the forums, many of them due to not taking care with the setup of them. One of the most common complaints is of a spongy feel. This is most certainly down to the type of cable and routing being used. At the very least you absolutely MUST use compressionless cable housing, and make sure that you run it full length to the brakes themselves.

Fantastic breake caliper — pretty much a required upgrade for WideWheel Installation was a tiny bit tricky, but the breaking power of this caliper by far exceeds that of the post-recall original caliper.

It took me about 1. Process would be far simpler if opening the deck could be avoided. Also, written instructions with pictures might be helpful, as I had to re-watch parts of the video many times to see what the narrator was referring to. Overall, worth the effort and money nonetheless.
Better braking. No more squealing.

A piece of wood or a dowel of the right dimension would be better, and a steel hammer would work fine. Lastly, from all those videos of Shandro, Simmons, Weir, testing out those new Shimano brakes, it looks like they are either on or off anyways, and those guys are undeniably outstanding riders. At this point a worthwhile compromise because I prefer the feel on wet or icy terrain. Simpl, no fuss and they just work. Windows XP is certainly the most typical functional method put in place at present on the computers around the globe. This is most certainly down to the type of cable and routing being used.
