    Avid SD7s Still On Any New Bikes?

    Quick Question: Are there any new bikes that still come with Avid Single Digit 7s as OE?

    Longer Version of the Question: The Avid SD7s that come from-the-factory on new bikes are colored BLACK and I like that. I like black better than the graphite color of my brand-new-in-the-box aftermarket SD7 levers and calipers. I'm trying to figure out if I can barter a swap with some LBS but it'd help to know what kind of bike still might come with SD7s before I start playing phonetag. :thumbsup:

    I have some SD-Ti calipers that I'd happily exchange for those XTRs...

    Good grief. Dminor is gone a couple hours and there's already been trading in an unauthorized sub-forum.

    I'm tellin' daddy.

    if that trading doesn't work out the sd-5s are like the same thing but w/o cartridge pads and i think they don't come with the long noodle, you could get sd5s and buy jagwire cartridge pads or somthin (sd5s are black)

    I bought a set of the SD 7's late last year. Though they call them 'graphite' - they really appear to be black.

    Absolutely great brakes! Running Kool Stop Thinline dual-compound pads. Also great!
    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?

    That's good news -- my SD7s still haven't arrived in the mail yet. If they look black enough, I think I'll just keep 'em!
