Avid BB7 on slot dropout Inbred
I know I’ve seen a thread here before but have tried several searches and can’t find it.
I’ve an 18″ slot dropout Inbred and want to put BB7s on it, after getting bored of repeatedly failing to sort the almost-Deore-but-not-quite-Deore hydraulics I have on it.
I know that the actuating arm on a BB7 snags on these frames, but I think someone on here posted how they got it to work. Think it involved tensioning the cable so it moved the arm a tiny amount, then doing something with the pad adapter?
Any ideas?Posted 5 years ago
Anyone got both Road and MTB BB7s?
As road levers pull less cable, is the arm on the road caliper shorter than on a MTB one to achieve the same pad movement?
Wondering if a road caliper would be a goer on a slot dropout Inbred. (With canti levers, rather than V brake, obviously.)Posted 5 years agoscaredypantsSubscriber
I have a slot dropout scandal (20″ I think) with road BB7s on it – using v-brake levers; it’s my mud bike and I use the extra pad travel to keep the gap open wider to avoid shite in the calliper.
Fits OK in the dropout angle with 185s on. Would be tighter for 160s I’m sure – main issue is tightening the bolts rather fouling once mounted IIRR
Not sure what’s different about the road model – I’d assumed it would be a different “pitch” on whatever converts arm movement into pad movement but the shorter arm would prob be easier to manufacturePosted 5 years ago
