I know its a bit of a long shot as they seem to be in demand but im looking for some mtb bb7 brakes. I recently bought a mountain bike for the first time in years and i've had no end of trouble trying to set up and bleed the fitted brakes (Hayes 9s) and now it turns out the front caliper is actually faulty.
I like the sound of mechanical disks for ease of maintenance and i always prefer to use stuff I can service myself.
Preferably looking for both calipers and I already have 160mm rotors which im guessing should work.
I would also be open to suggestions of any alternative systems that would offer similar performance and ease of use.
Thanks in advance.

Have a look on e-bay. Full sets of BB7's for about £56 (with free p&p).

Thanks for that, sorry should have updated the thread as I'm sorted now. After a chat with a friend who works in my lbs I ended up going for a set of the new deore hydraulics. After a bit of a faff shortening the hoses they seem to be working great and should hopefully be hassle free.
