When i had the Avids i was using the XTR's with no problems. The way i look at it is if you have good quality cable pull levers you are setup. Hook it all up & go ride!Endoverend! said:Anyone ever try this? The Avid manual says you have to use V levers, but my local shop guys say that the canti levers, of which I have a nice pair, should work fine.... what to believe?
What about Dia Compe SS-5 MKII levers with Avid Mechs? Does anyone know if this will work?shiggy said:Depends on the lever. Some canti levers will work, some won't. There was more variation in the amount of cable pull with canti levers than there is in v-levers.
Probably not. The SS-5 levers have the least amount of cable pull among canti levers. They would not work with most IRD rim brakes of the time because of that.JoeP said:What about Dia Compe SS-5 MKII levers with Avid Mechs? Does anyone know if this will work?
