    Lightweight comfortable cable disc levers?

    Well I just ordered my '07 x.0 shifters to go along with my new '07 x.0 RD, so I should have them anyday. In any case, I currently have Shimano LX shifter/brake levers and I absolutely hate the way they feel. I had Avid speed dials on my old bike and i loved those and didn't mind the fact that they bent, as they always seemed to bend back and work perfectly fine. In any case anybody have any suggestion's on lightweight, avid-esique, decent looking cable brake levers? I was planning on the Avid FR-5's mainly b/c they weigh the same as the speed dial ultimates, cheap and look comfortable. I have Avid BB-7 discs for reference which I absolutely love, after coming from crappy hayes mx-1's.

    Any v-brake lever works fine.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
