i'm thinking its time to replace my v-brakes (xt v-brake 98 - parallel push mechanism) because i am noticing some movement in the front, maybe the rear too, but definetly the front. doing my homework on this and i've decided on the avid single digit 7, single digit sl and shimano xtr. i am only considering the xtr because of the parallel push mechanism, but they are really only a thought seeing that i would probably end up with play in them as i have with my existing brakes (although, i don't expect to have the bike long enough for this to be an issue) and they are pricey - but i would like to hear opinions. i'm open to the paul componets motolite but the price and initial setup make me wary. for me, it really comes down to the avid's - single digit 7 and single digit sl. any differences between the 07', 08' and 09' models (can find some great deals on the older models, but they don't say much of any difference). would really love opinions. oh, and disc brakes are not an option.
fyi - will use either the single digit 7 or single digit sl brake levers, no matter what set i go with and will use kool stop pads.
