      I will use these on my mountain bike for off road and commuter riding. The levers appear to be good quality and very reasonably priced. Installation was easy

          I bought a pair for my 29er and my single speed commuter. Great clinching power, full range of handle adjustment too. These brake levers are better than I thought they'd be.

              Comments about Avid Speed Dial 7 Brake Levers:

              Swapped out old XT V brake levers for these with Avid BB7 disc brakes and what a difference. Certainly there was no lack of power before but there were some very white knuckle rides due to effort level. Now it's one finger and superior modulation with the same brake. Use these and you simply won't go back.

                Use these in combio with BB7s. They work great together and the combination is as good if not better than the hydro discs on my other rig. Very adjustable and great price.

                Comments about Avid Speed Dial 7 Brake Levers:

                Replaced a set of Tektro levers with these and noticed a big difference in braking (Hayes MX-4 mechanical discs). The Speed Dial lets you tune your brakes for more power or modulation on the fly. If you have mechanical discs or linear pull brakes, you owe it to yourself to pick up a set.

                  Been using these levers for ten years on several different bikes, and I love them for their simplicity and adjustability. If this newer model is just as good (or better) as my old one, then you have nothing to lose here.
