I’ve spent a lot of time playing with the Avid BB7s that came stock on the Muk. I really like the Speed Dial levers that I’ve been using, but the mechanical brakes are a thorn in my side. (I’m not so fond of their road equivalent on the Vaya either…and I look forward to a hydro conversion on it, some day).
The fork install was the perfect time to throw on a set of Avid XOs. Since beggars can’t be choosers, these are 2011 XOs…160mm up front, 145mm out back.
They’re pre-bled, and installation was a snap.
Not much to report at this point…they look good and they successfully survived the 3 minute midnight test ride.
