    Switching my BBS02 kit from a mechanical disc brakes to hydraulics... Do I need to swap out the brake levers?

    Definitely. When you buy hydraulic brakes, they will come with levers attached to the calipers via a hydraulic hose, ready to install.

        Sorry, I am not familiar with the levers from the BBS02 kit.

          Well the bafang brake levers are mechanical lol (cable actuated) the bike you are swapping the bbs to has hydraulic brakes so what are you really asking? Wether to swap the hydraulics out for the mechanical bbs02 levers with cutoffs and the old mechanical calipers from the original bike.
          Most certainly NOT lol

                  My vote goes for the trip wire other than dedicated hydraulic levers with built-in cuttoffs. Make sure you get the push type!!
