I have a Surly Disc Trucker with Avid BB7 mountain brakes / Tektro levers / drop bars. I absolutely hate the way the Tektro hoods feel. But I absolutely LOVE the way SRAM hoods feel. Unfortunately I'd have to switch brakes if I got the SRAM S500 levers since they pull a different amount of cable.
Does anyone have any experience with disc brake calipers, and/or any suggestions for disc brakes? I know Avid makes a BB7 road, but I have no idea how they perform compared to the mountain version. Is the clearance tighter?
I guess a lot of my confusion about this leads back to "why did Surly choose BB7 Mountain over BB7 Road?" My assumption is the lack of road disc lever options, so I'm also posting this thread to get input on that as well.
Sorry for the wall of text. Any input on this issue would help. Thanks!
