    Danger Boy levers with bb7's?

    I was wondering if it is possible to run the Danger Boy aftermarket brake levers with bb7 disc brakes?. I checked their site, but I didnt see anything for the bb7. I think it's rather weird as bb7's are the some of the most popular mechanical disc brakes.
    I dont mind changing to a different lever body if I have to.
    Thanks in advance.

    The BB7's don't have specific levers.. you can use any "v-brake" lever. The Avid Speed Dial lever is a popular lever to use with BB7s...

    This dangerboy mechanical levers might be what you want

    Well... I suppose this can be bling enough for the bling-commuter

    I searched first.

    I found this thread about the levers, so I thought I would just add to it. Hope that works.

    I'm wondering if anybody has tried these levers yet. I'm wondering how they feel etc. Can anyone compare them to Avid Ultimates?

    FYI I'm thinking of using them with Avid BB7's.

    I'd bet the avid speed dials will offer more adjustment...just "looks" like the DB levers will have the barrel adjuster...I could be wrong though.

    As far as I know, they're not available yet...those are the pics from interbike IIRC.

    I didn't know they weren't available yet. I sent them an email trying to clarify the weight, but I have not heard anything back from them yet...

    Try these: Paul Component Engineering Love Levers. I ran BB7 brakes front and rear on two bikes with them. Wonderful feeling levers. Light, stiff, easily adjustable reach, and the ability to tighten/loosen for slop at the pivot as much as you want. The only downside is no Speed Dial adjust; no biggy if you don't care. I never used that when I had Avid levers, so it made no difference to me. Awesome levers!

    "2"

    I have the Paul Love Levers for my Avid mechs too. They are great!

    Cheers, Chris

    Paul levers were amazing. Kooka also made some sweet levers.

    Shimano XTRs and Avid Ultimates may be a bit easier to find. They are great levers as well.

    Were? They still are.

    Paul Love Levers are still being made, FYI. And there are quite a few places to get them online, including direct from P.C.E. Not really super cheap, but then, I'm sure the Dangerboy levers aren't exactly cheap either.

    I sold off both sets of my BB7s, with the Paul levers and cables housing, for very nearly the price of buying my Juicy-5 setups!
