We've discussed this in quite a bit of detail recently, these links should help:

First discussion thread:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... sc&start=0

Second one, where we "pointed" to the first thread:
http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... sc&start=0

In short, BB7s are amazing. BB5s are great, but provide you with less adjustment options. I know you've purchased already, but there's some info for the future.

Good luck!

BB7 are great , but I found BB5 not very good . IMO BB7 are worth the extra money . they are heavier than top of the range hydraulic . the only downside is that they dont self adjust when pads wear out .
