Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap does teh job Works well with standard road brakes, love the included cables 11 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top quality Bought these for a orange P7 from 95 I was working on I wanted a pair of levers that would work with my old cantilever brakes , these fit the bill . They have a nice feel to them when braking . Very cheep and finished the bike off. 07 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent brake levers. I fitted these levers to my Giant hybrid. Couldn't be happier. Easy to fit , excellent value came with cables and housings. 02 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for my fixie I put these on my fixie build project and the look (and function) is perfect. I did a fair bit of internet searching and thought these were the best buy. 11 September 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Nice feel, easy to fit replacing drop handlebars with a butterfly one, so needed new brake levers to go with the cantilever brakes that are on the bike. These levers are nicely made, when fitted produce plenty of power for my canti brakes (I'm a leisure cyclist), easy to fit (even I could do it at the first attempt, ever), and they came with new cables (both inner and outer) one long, one medium length, plus the metal ferrels (end bits for the outer) and two soft aluminium end bits (that you crimp on the inner cable). Well worth the money. 23 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Value - Clean Look I use these on flat bar road bikes I build for myself and others using both Grip Shift and Trigger shifters. They work well either way and have a nice clean appearance. They are noiseless too as I have had rattling problems with Tektro. I wish the lever was a little wider but to distribute the force across more hand area but this is not a big issue. You could use these on a bike with cantilever brakes but maybe a more robust model would be better. These are plenty sturdy for a road bike. 16 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome It was a pleasant surprise that these levers came with the brake cables and housing! The reach adjustment is perfect for people with small hands like myself. Levers provide alot of leverage and braking power. 27 October 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great set of levers These are a great set of levers. Come with two inner brake cables and two black outer cables as well. Great value and very nice stopping power. 08 August 2012

Answers

Answer: 
No, these levers are designed for use on caliper/ cantilever brakes and will not work effectively with a linear pull brake such as the BB5. If you want to use these levers you will need to use the 'Road' version of the BB5 (linked below). You would be better advised to use a linear pull lever such as those below if using the BB5 Mechanical brake.

Answers

Answer: 
The 5700 brake calipers are intended only to be used with Drop Bar Levers as the braking performance provided by Flat Bar Shifters will be much too strong and lacking in modulation/control.

Shimano specifically advise against this combination.
