+1 for BB7’s. Stick with 160’s. Levers? Sure. Cables? Never. Reusing old cables is like putting on a dirty pair of socks.

Totally agree. I LOVED my BB7’s I ran 160mm’s front and back and had no complaints about the stopping power. Definitely put on new cables while you’re swapping the calipers and rotors it is inexpensive and doesn’t take that long to do. When I installed my BB7’s I put on cane creek direct curve levers and they were awesome.
