    Paul E-levers ??

    I'm currently using BB7 road calipers with Tektro XL750 BMX levers.
    This has worked really well, but the levers need replacing.
    I'm a fan of short levers, any comments about using Paul E-levers?
    Good or bad?

    Straight from the Paul website.

    I'd stay far away. The people that get these levers buy them because they're more worried about minimalist looks than functionality.

    If you like 1 finger levers, move your levers farther inboard and adjust the reach to bring the lever back to the bar. Avid SD-7s are really nice levers for the price and offer reach adjust as well as the speed dial to adjust the lever feel from firm to squishy but you're using road BB7s so you're stuck with BMX levers . . .
