    V Brake levers

    Converting my Kona Hot to SS, and trying to decide on some new levers. I have XTR v brakes on it. Any suggestions?

    Jenson has XTR levers on sale for $75. I know alot of people like Avid SD, but is the Ultimate worth the price, just to be able to get the lever a little closer to the handle bar.

    Let me know what you guys think!

    I personally love the feel of the XTR levers and have them on 2 different bikes, that is a good price as well. I also like the Avid sd7 levers, they are very strong levers and have a decent feel, also pretty cheap. I would not waste my money on the Ultimate levers, the brake arms are excellent though.

    I love the Avid levers, the blades on Shimano levers always felt to narrow to me. And I'll agree with Fuzz, the Ultimate levers aren't worth it unless you find a set for incredibly cheap, but the brake arms are incredible, I've got a set on my touring bike and I don't have to worry at all if I'm going to be able to slow the bike down even loaded!

    happy trails...
