There are two versions of the Avid BB7 available, labeled mountain and road depending on the cable pull required. This will be on a drop-bar bike, and I have either type of brake lever available (a V-brake compatible Tektro lever or a standard Cane Creek), and would be happy using either. This will be the front brake, operated by the left hand, and I never use STI shifters for the front derailleur, only bar-end or down-tube, so compatibility with those is not an issue. Does anyone have any experience as to whether the road or mountain version of the BB7, paired with the appropriate lever, performs better than the other?
I read that the road version is supplied with inline cable adjusters, whereas the mountain version is not, but I have an extra one of those already, so that also doesn't matter to me. The price difference is also not big enough to worry about, so I'm looking to find something else that will help me to decide between them. Any thoughts?
