Has anyone tried these v-brakes? I am curious how they perform compared to Avid, Vuelta, etc. Also, I don't understand how the brake cable is fixed to the brake arm. It looks like there is a space for the ball at the end of the cable, but if that is true then the other end wouldn't be able to fit in the brake lever once the cable is trimmed.

I may sell my Vuelta Magnesiums for these because I like the CNC look.
