Avid BB7's - comes with the pads?

Just wondering if the Avid BB7's come with brake pads or not. No site seems to indicate one or the other...
Thanks!

Thanks - ordered a pair, wanted to make sure I wasn't forgetting anything. Though I did forget brake cable since they need a longer cable, I think (duh).

I recommend the Speedial levers, also. Great feel, and the reach adjustment is super-simple to use. You will be needing new cables, like you said.

The days of having no brakes when its wet/muddy will soon be behind you...

Yup...you're gonna love them. Avid Flak Jackets would be a good choice at this point. Good Luck.
