Brakes, brakes, brakes...

I've got a 2014 giant revolt 2 with disc brakes. Bb5 calipers. I've been having some issues with the front brake rubbing and making a squealing noise and have had the bike down to the bike shop several times for adjustment. I'm thinking about just buying a front bb7 caliper as they are much easier to adjust. How hard would it be to install? The caliper is apparently a 2013 model according to amazon. Will it fit? I figure all I need is the front because the rear is not giving me problems and I'll just upgrade later. I can't stand the squealing!!!!!

It's as easy as unbolting the old caliper and bolting on the new one.

Make sure to get the 'Road' version if you do change brakes.
