    BB7's with Tektro levers....

    I have a 2010 SE Stout, on a whim I ordered a set of 185mm BB7's. Can I get by with the Tektro pulls till I get some that are better suited to the brakes??

    As far as I know it doesn't matter what levers you decide to run with a mechanical disc brake because they all do pretty much the same thing: pull the cable via connection to the cable and leverage.

    Tektro makes a lot of different levers.

    Any V-brake type levers works with BB7s.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I figured as much but it doesn't hurt to ask. I didn't want to install everything the BB7's then find out I have to put the stockers back on.

    I should have them in a week or so, pics(finally, of said SE) and reviews then.

    Avid speed dial levers. Better modulation in my experience.
