I am confident that you will not regret getting a bike with Avid BB-5 brakes. These enjoy a well-deserved reputation as being among the most robust, reliable and easy to adjust disc brake systems. You will also find that the rotors are largely self-cleaning, whereas rims are not. I have to scrub the rims on my road bike to maintain optimum braking performance far more often than I have to clean the BB-5 rotors on my MTB.
