    My understanding is that most all shimano brake stuff is cross compatible with one another. Some systems use different hoses and attachments, so sometimes things have to be changed out, but that the parts are there to make it all work together one way or another. Contact a LBS for specifics.

    I was able to use a set of LX levers as a straight swap. Bonus is that they made the brakes feel a lot better also.
    I'm looking forward to regretting this.......
