Received and fitted today. Fully boxed retail version of these for anyone wondering, with really high quality cables. There is a switchable cam in each lever to set it for either MTB V-Brakes or road calliper or road disc brakes. They come preset for V-brakes so you will need to change the cam if your are using a road bike. Bit of a faff, don’t lose the tiny screw holding the cam in place and fit the cable into the lever first as you won’t manage it after. very happy with them for the price, way better than the budget offerings. They are a very dark green colour rather than black, suits me but some may not like that.
I have more Onkyo AV Receivers than I have a use for, so I keep one on the bike with the power cord wrapped around the seat post and if I start going too fast I use it as an anchor.
I assumed that hotukdealers are too hard core cyclists to need minor things such as brake levers.
They would work, but might not be optimal. MTB cable levers often have a cam so that they pull in more cable faster. I got a full set of alloy v brakes, levers, pads and cables direct from Clarks on ebay for about £15 so unless you need to match a Tiagra groupset you might as well look elsewhere, particularly if you are using v-brakes.
Would these not work with v or cantilevers?
