    Upgrading to BB7s

    I am considering upgrading from Avid V-Brakes to their BB7s. My bike came with Avid FR5 brake levers. Will I be pretty happy with the performance of the mechanical disks with those brake levers, or will the levers need to be upgraded to the adjustable type? I'm pretty happy with the reach to the levers as they are set up for the V-Brakes, not so happy with the fussiness of the V-Brakes themselves, and like the idea of all-weather performance of disks.

    I prefer different levers... I don't like the direct cable pull (lack of linkage in the lever). But those levers will work fine. If you decide that they aren't living up to your expectations you can always upgrade at a later time.
