    7900 calipers with v-brake levers???

    Does anyone know if this works. The leverage ratio has been changed from 7800 so the old flat bar levers shouldn't work. Who knows for sure?

    Changed how?

    More leverage / less pull; or less leverage / more pull?
    (a few years ago, I would have probably known this, but my interests are now almost exclusively off-road.)

    I suspect that even if it has increased pull, as needed, it won't be enough...but like you said, who knows?

    good luck.

    PVD - question for you - how concerned should I be about a little DOT4 fluid seeping from a bleed valve of a Hayes EC brake lever onto my Easton Carbon bar?
