Rated 4 out of 5 by MarkP At this price cant really fault them
I upgraded to these from Shimano acera all in one lever/shifters.
Brake levers can make as much of a difference as the brakes themselves and these are great with my Avid BB7s. They feature reach adjustment and little rubber bumpers that give a soft smooth lever return. I would have opted for the XT levers at twice the price but availability of high end mechanical brakes is limited now hydrolics are so popular and cheaper. These Deore levers are very good but lack the bite of higher spec models (for example the old LX levers).

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Peut mieux faire !
Leviers solides, le freinage est agréable.
Cependant deux mauvais points à signaler :
- La molette de réglage de la tension du câble est en plastique de pas très bonne qualité, je ne lui donne pas une longue espérance de vie, dommage ça fait tâche au milieu du reste...
- La vis qui permet le serrage du levier sur le guidon est un peu trop vers l'avant, du coup quand on utilise certaines manettes de dérailleur, ça gène un peu... et on est obligé de les déplacer un peu, donc moins d'ergonomie !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Wow!!
I just got this lever for my SS mtb which has Avid BB7 brakes. Previously had some cheap, sloppy, tektro levers. These are like night and day! The overall quality is incredible! They're really smooth and has no vertical clearance at all. Just feels really solid. So now my BB7's feel pretty much like my other bike's hydraulic brakes! It's almost like I want to change the hydraulic brakes too, because of the simplicity of this set up.
The only downside, which is more of an issue with V-brakes, is that the lock ring and slack adjuster is plastic and they feel pretty cheap. I have these bottomed out because I do all the adjustments on the brake caliper instead, so I don't really care about this. For my part it's definately a 5 star, but I have to consider this issue, and it makes them 4 star overall.

Very good all around levers. Got them for my bike and they work wonders. Good feedback, easy to set up, silent, and well made. For those of you who care about colors (i know i do) the lever itself is dark grey and not silver as it appears to be on the picture.
