Avid BB7 Brake Caliper for Mercane WideWheel

Sale price Price $79.00 Regular price

The Avid BB7 is an industry standard caliper around for many years. fluidfreeride fitted it to work with the WideWheel including a custom adapter.

The inner and outer brake pads are adjustable by hand while the caliper is mounted which makes this easier to maintain vs the standard caliper coming with the WideWheel. Due to larger brake pad size it should also increase brake performance. If you are unhappy with your current caliper, try this upgrade.

Comes with WideWheel custom mount, mounting bolts, and cable end cap.

fluidfreeride WW customers use code AVID4WWSAVE40 to get it for $39.

Requires you to open the WideWheel bottom cover. Have a look at our installation instructions before you buy!

Fantastic breake caliper — pretty much a required upgrade for WideWheel 2019.

I've replaced the brake caliper twice: first time due to the recall, and the second time when I purchased this upgraded one. Installation was a tiny bit tricky, but the breaking power of this caliper by far exceeds that of the post-recall original caliper. I strongly recommend that if you live in the hills you upgrade. I also am thankful to FluidFreeRide for letting WideWheel owners by this caliper with a discount. Thumbs up! 👍🏽

Brake upgrade

The brake upgrade is a better performing brake. Bigger brake pads probably why. But still, the dual brakes on the 2020 model seems essential; even with a fully tightened brake on the rear, it doesnt stop as quickly as you need for city riding.

Great upgrade, but installation should not be underestimated

Stopping power feels like it is doubled once this is installed and calibrated. This makes a significant difference when going down hills at speed. It took me about 1.5 hours total to remove the existing caliper (easy), install the new caliper (easy) adjust the caliper (hard) open the deck and adjust the cable length (very time consuming) and attach the new caliper to the cable (easy). Process would be far simpler if opening the deck could be avoided. Also, written instructions with pictures might be helpful, as I had to re-watch parts of the video many times to see what the narrator was referring to. Overall, worth the effort and money nonetheless.

Avid BB7 Brake Caliper is better

Simple alignment. Better braking. No more squealing.

Huge inprovement

Not only can I easily dial away any squeaks, but the braking ability is far greater. Also when it comes time to change the pads, I can easily find replacement. Thanks Fluidfreeride!
