    Drop levers with MTN BB7's

    I'm looking to put my dirt drops on my rigid ss to experiment with single track and commutes.

    Don't need levers to shift as its just a single speed. If I do plan to use gears ill just get Barcons.

    So are there any drop brake levers that work with mountain bb7's?

    Thanks a bunch!

    There's something about those long grueling climbs that gets my front end all stiff... And I'm not talking about lockout...

    Here's my recent conversion for my all arounder (town/trail-a-bike/commute) bike, with the tektro's on on-one mary's.

    Nice man! Mines a rigid ss at 32/20 but I've been trying to decide what I wanna settle on for road commutes AND singletrack. That gearing is too easy for road but just right for my trails. I will also have cargo on the road so it may balance out. I could go to an 18 and just man up on trails.
