Avid BB7 Pad Adjustment *LINK*

Posted By: Ian Broadhead
Date: 26 August 2008

Further to my previous thread regarding the Avid BB7 disc brake I have checked the rotor set up and it appears to be correct ( 2/3 gap at the non-moving pad side to 1/3 gap at the moving pad side )and have cleaned the rotor and some new pads are on order ( they did look a little worn on removal and if they exceeded the 3mm including backing advised by Avid then it was only just ),thanks to those who assisted.

On Googling round about this brake I came across some information on the Park Tool site regarding set-up and pad adjustment which I think is clearer and perhaps more comprehensive than that of Avid ( see link ).

One interesting thing which is mentioned,not even by Avid,is that to maintain the 1/3,2/3 rotor gaps,and therefore proper rotor set-up,when adjusting the pads then click the non moving pad twice the number of clicks than the moving pad.
