    Avid Speed Dial

    Should Avid Speed Dial 7 levers be compatible with any mechanical disc brakes?

    I have Tektro IO mechanicals, and am wanting some new levers.. the Speed Dials look nice.

    Let me know of any issues that might arise, please,

    Thanks

    Yes. The SD7 would work fine with the Tektro IO... but you're better off upgrading the calipers.

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I understand that calipers are better to upgrade.. but the levers are in horrible condition, and my mom is willing to buy the levers Right Now. There is no way I could convince her to spend $110+ compared to the $40 she is willing to spend now.

    Anyways this will make it more economical when I do decide to upgrade the calipers, since I have been wanting Avid BB7's - next time money shows up I can just buy them.

    SD7's should be around $20 by the way.
