Are these the lightest disc brakes around? Or one of? What's lighter?
I just built up my bike and put some SD7 levers and brakes on it because of the weight issue.
However, due to my brother's pestering I was keeping my eye on different disc brakes on ebay.
Thought that if I was going to get any then I'd go for the BB7's as they seem to be a simple set up and also seem to be lightweight.
So I just picked up a BBDB for £15 posted, which I am pretty happy with. I can always sell it if I don't think the extra perferomance, if there is any over my v-brakes, is worth the weight gain, over my v-brakes....
I weigh 60kgs. I understand body weight is important when looking at brakes. I think 60kgs is pretty light so it's not like I need the most powerful breaks out there is it?
Would I see an even bigger improvement with hydraulics (but even heavier brake system), or will these be fine for me as I am lightweight myself?
