    I would pick the Lapierre over most bikes! Just because I haven't ridden one before, and they seem slightly exotic.

    I assume you mean brake pads.

    BB7s are a good choice for mechanical disc brakes, and easy to install (I upgraded my MTB to use a front BB7 a couple years ago.) 160mm is a standard rotor size.
