Avid BB7 front brake problems
Hi I was wondering if somebody had some insight for my problem.
I recently bought a Surly Troll with mechanical Avid BB7 disk brakes (160mm rotors).
What I read, it looks like the brakes need to be worn in a little bit to develop their full power. The rear brakes work great, but the front brakes still haven't developed their full grip. (after about 300 miles of riding)
What could be the reason for that? Essentially the rear brakes give me currently more stopping power than the front brakes. I can't even get the front brakes to lock up. That can't be right, can it?
Thank you for any advice.
