Comments about Nashbar Deluxe Mountain Bike Brake Levers:

I have used these levers on a number of bike builds and the lever bushing is very cheap and it all fits loose in the housing so it can rattle and be very annoying. Not all samples do it but I recommend the Shimano R550 or Tiagra 4700 for short reach (flat bar on dual pivot) applications for a much smoother and better contoured lever. For long reach (V-Brakes & Mech. discs, you can't beat the venerable Avid Speed Dial and the Shimano Deore 610 Trekking. Also, the new Shimano BL-780 works with all brakes including the new Super SLR brakes that I highly recommend for road bikes. Yes, standard short reach levers work fine with SLR brakes too but in braking, can you have too much power,smoothness, and modulation? These Nashbar brakes are low end Tekro which is normally a reliable company making value oriented products but this lever is the bottom of the heap. They won't break but I don't recommend them.

Levers are great but included rear brake wire is to short for any cantilever setup.

      I installed these break levers to replace the levers on my wife's Trek Sky. The levers were an excellent upgrade and greatly improved the stopping power.

          Comments about Nashbar Deluxe Mountain Bike Brake Levers:

          These work exactly as expected, but I should add that, contrary to some of Nashbar's claims, they will not work with road calipers nor cantilevers. Fine for V-brake/linear pull and disc. So if you're converting your road bike to flat bars these won't work. Unlike more expensive levers they cannot be switched at the cable attachment - it's riveted in place.

                This was used to convert an older Puch 10-speed to a hybrid. The drop bar levers did not fit the mountain bar setup.

                  The reach adjustment screw is inaccessible when the levers are installed unless you have a very, very short driver (I don't). It's a hassle to remove the levers to adjust the reach, but oh well. They rattle some on rough surfaces but they work well otherwise. I would still recommend them though with the above caveats.

                    The Nashbar Deluxe Mountain Bike Brake Levers are a good item for any stock bike that needs a make over.

                    The original levers on this mountain bike were very low grade aluminum parts. One handle broke after some moderate abuse, but less than expected to break them. The Nashbar parts were easy to install and are a lot better than the originals. And do take abuse nicely.

                    Would recommend them to anyone.

                      I used these levers when I converted my wife's bike from drop bars to a hybrid-type riser bar configuration. The installation was easy and they work nicely with a set of Shimano 105 brake calipers. Stopping power is very good. The cable length adjusters at the levers are nice. The price was good in that the kit included cables and housings. They look like they should be pretty durable. The one downside is that the levers are pretty short.

                      These brake levers are well made and work great. The levers slide onto the handlebars, so you have to remove the gear shifters and handlebar grips.
