The parts: 4 brand new sets of BB7 brakes with Avid Speed Dial 7 levers and Jagwire cable/housing. Dremel to cut the front casing (rear did not need cutting). Torque wrench.
I have so far set up 3 sets of bb'7s, multiple times, and I am still not happy with the performance. I would expect to be able to lock up the brakes if I want, right now what I am getting is the brakes won't lock even when I squeeze all the way in. I should not have to pull the lever half way in to begin to stop. Terrible.
I followed this guide http://howtosetuptheavidbb7.weebly.c...-avid-bb7.html to the word. I tried it a few times.
Maybe the pads need wearing in? How bad are they supposed to be before wearing in?
I have read a million threads but it is not really helping. I do see a lot of bend in the rotor when the brake engages. Not sure where to go from here...
