    Brake levers - SSCX?

    I'm putting together a new SSCX, I'm looking at either the Sram S500 or S900 or sticking with the Cane Creek SCR-5c that I have on my current bike and have been happy with. Any reason to pay double the price for the S500 or even triple for the S900 over the Cane Creek levers? What is everybody else using?
    I only ride bikes to fill the time when I'm not skiing.

    I prefer my SCR-5C's as well, and they might be a bit more sturdy in a crash situation. Not that you'll crash.

    I like the feel of the SCRs. Test-rode the SRAMs, felt flimsy.

    Cane creeks all the way

    Scr5c's for me and I love em. Probably the best thing besides the amazing comfort for me is that they are bullet proof, crashed three times in two weeks commuting on my cross check, twice on single track and once taken out by a car and barely a scratch on my levers they just twisted around the bar a bit. Easy fix!

    I'm on the SCR-5. XXL gloves for my freakishly long hands.
