Date Reviewed: April 5, 1999

Strengths:    
Great lever, very light and feels very strong. I was more worried about breaking the cantis than breaking these, which is rare. They feel really smooth, and have a great action.


Weaknesses:    
They are very expensive if you pay retail price, but most places have them on closeout, especially the canti version, which is what I have. Also, the brake cable adjuster has a very small knurled portion, which is hard to adjust with gloves on.


Bottom Line:   
These are great levers, and the cheaper you get them for, the better they are. As a cantilever user, these are among the best levers I have tried in terms of their combination of light weight and strength. At the price that I paid (I got a pair of purple for $10 new, and a pair of black for $20), you cant go wrong, and they have no equals.
