 Very good for riding around town and if your riding a dj course and you need that quick tap to slow you down not to much. Wouldnt recommend if your trying to stop on a dime but a never the less a very good break

 I use 2 of these on my Specialized Hardrock, and LOVE them. They have pretty good stoping power and good adjustment options.

Avid BB5 Road (MSRP $57.5) — To this day, the BB5 continues to attract all types of riders who crave the simplicity and elegant function of the world’s best cable-actuated brake. It’s more powerful and is easier to set up than any mechanical disc ... ever. Details including the dual-pad adjustment knobs, easy pad replacement, precision ball bearing actuation, and infinitely variable spring tension details ... mean control like you’ve never felt before. Plus, using any of our Ball Bearing Disc BrakesTM means that you can choose one of our levers with Speed Dial® for sweet, adjustable modulation. Isn’t the freedom of choice swell? our Speed Dial® levers for sweet, adjustable modulation. You can’t get that on any hydraulic. Last but not least, this year we gave the BB7 a tasty new finish, new inboard/outboard adjustment knobs and a beefy two-piece, forged body.
