bbdb is an older version Avid BB7 that they don't make anymore. They changed the design in like 2008. So you'll have a hard time finding that brake.

As far as adapters, I really don't know anything about them but I'd trust anything made by Hope. If you break a Hope, maybe there is something else going on beyond just simple equipment failure.

unfortunately, the place where I am at does not like ebay... instead they have their own platform of ebay-like. Anyway, i ordered the Hope caliper adapter since i couldn't find any other solid made adapters.

I felt secured by the power of 203 rotors specially that my calipers were only 2 pots. I am out of budget when talking about quads calipers....

41893

Got this from 2nd hand shop, looks un-beaten with free fancy bolts for half the price of my torn up hope, indeed beefy, bit heavier...
41894

And the setup is darn straight, no extra washers in-between, perfect clearance on rotor and caliper.
Hope this will get back my confidence in learning...
