Pros

Totally one finger breaking. Double side past travel make switching between wheels as simple as with hydro's.

Cons

Now what are you gonna do with those BB7s.

Other Thoughts

Get them now, you won't be sorry.

Pros

Dual actuating pads allow the brake to be set up with closer pad to rotor tolerances and better improved braking feel compared with the Avid BB7s it replaced.

It also mounts a few mm inboard compared with the BB7s which provided more clearance to my rear bike rack so I was able to do away with the rack spacers on the rear brake side.

Cons

Pad adjustments use a 3mm hex wrench. The tool-less BB7 adjustments are better and more fine-grained.

Other Thoughts

Was very happy with the BB7s, so I bought just one TRP Spyke brake to try on the rear. Like it so much I'm getting another one for the front!
