What's the BB7 disk brake like?
I've decided to go back to a front disk but I don't want to get rid of my STI units so considering a cable disk. Is it as good as an XTR V brake?
Alternatively, can you get a converter to change from cable to hydraulic?!

Thanks.

I found that Hope make a cable - hydraulic converter but it's a silly price. Hopefully someone in Taiwan will bring out a cheaper alternative :p
