    Lever Recommendations

    Building up the Smoothie this weekend and looking for lever recommendations. Went with the Avid CPS brakes. I have Love Levers for the vee's and wondering about opinions of the Paul's vs Avid Ultimates. Thanx!!

    As per usual, please search the forum before posting a similar new thread. Thank you.

    Lever questions for Avid mechs are quite common here.

    I recently switched from old Avid SD2.0's (same as the SD-7's) which were getting sloppy in the pivots to a set of the Avid Ultimate Black Ops. The Ultimates are quite nice with no more lever slop. I like the leverage adjustment with the mech discs. I've got them adjusted about mid-way, and they modulate well. Way pricey, but nice. The bolt torque settings are engraved right on the lever body for a rather industrial look. I've never used the Paul's Love Levers, though lots of folks like them, too. I believe they're less expensive, if that matters.

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.
