Easily adjusted. Simple to maintain. Very reliable and long-lasting. Solid stopping power - especially if you have large rotors. Seem to be the best mechanicals out there. Very affordable.
Obviously not as powerful as hydraulics or have as much modulation.
If you don't want the price and hassle of hydraulics, these are a good option. Steer away from the BB5s by Avid, though. They are less-expensive, but very difficult to adjust. BB7s will work for years and years.
