    Difference btw ft and rr Avid BB7/BB5 disc for road shifters

    Hi Guys,

    So I'm putting together a commuter and planed to use disc brakes in the front. No one seems to carry the front for less than $100, but rear can be had for less than $60. Is there a difference other than the mounting bracket?

    ANd this is for Shimano STI shifters so I need the road version. and also, my second choice would be the BB5s, and the 08 model is cheaper than the 07, anyone know why?

    Thanks

    The BB7 can adjust both pads without tools, the BB5 only one pad, the other needs a tool.
