    New question here. Shimano (XTR) Levers with BB7's

    I recently purchased a Niner EMD frame. I have purchased BB7's for the bike.

    A year or so ago, I put a new XTR drive train on my old Trek 8500 (1996) with the intention of putting the parts on a new frame later on down the line, which is now. Along with the drive train, I purchased XTR levers.

    I've recently been reading that BB7's are best when used with Avid's lever.

    Is there any one out there that has Shimano levers with Avid mechanicals? I'm curious to know how well they work. I dropped a lot of coin on those XTR levers, and I really don't want to let them go on eBay for cheap.

    Thanks!

    I have used BB7's with XT and XTR levers and they work great.
