I speak for most here, Avid BB7's.

But im interested as to what else would come close to them?

Like orange71 I've only used BB7s and I'm very happy with them.
I use SD7 levers with them and 160mm rotors front and rear. Might try a 180mm rotor on the front just to see what difference it makes :shock:

But why would you want cables when hydraulics are so much better?
