Have you broken the bb7 in yet? How's the performance? Does it have enough power as a rear brake? I used to ride a Simtra with a rear Hope and I loved the disc's performance and everything, but the mushy lever feeling was something I couldn't stand. So a few weeks ago I got myself a new Czar with a Dengura but I'm slightly missing the rear disc.. And as I still have the frame I was thinking of getting a 203mm bb7 to the rear and going back to the Simtra, as I could sell the Czar for the same price I got it.

Edit: Just noticed that... where is your rear valve?! :huh:

Avids been awsome today :) when it rained the brake went from good to amazing but i will probably end up buying hopes as i dont 100% trust how strong the avids are :(

Had one one the front of my mod for nearly 2 years and its fine, but i have heard horror stories about them :(

nitromores/ spray your rims and that will be even better

No thanks i like the green kinda has a comp bike look :P

Awesome setup. I would love it if the sidewall on the rear rim had paint, but that is just for looks.

Rear rim was 2nd hand :( will end up buying a new one soon though as this ones nackered

thanks for the comments soo far :)
