Yes.

My GF's bike has LX levers and Avid Mechs. They work fine.

Avid Speed Dial levers give you a little bit more adjustment, but it's not worth the cost to swap, IMHO.

Even the new dual control....

I like the leverage of the shitmano's better than Avids.

The pivot point on a Shitmano lever is farther than on an Avid so you get more cable pull and leverage than with Avids.

Avids are more adjustable but as someone said... it's not worthy.

Workin' for me

I'm using the XT shifter/brake lever combo with my Avid mechs on my 2001 Jamis Eureka...so far so good.

Title says it all. Will the avid mech disc brakes work with XT brake levers?
