Avid Speed Dial 7 Linear Pull Levers
Avid Speed Dial 7 levers are some of the best levers available for linear pull style mechanical brakes. These work with linear pull brakes (Avid, Shimano V-brakes, Long-Pull Mechanical Disc Brakes, etc), and help to provide smooth, efficient and powerful braking. Please note that these are not for use with short pull road caliper brakes, but are designed for use with linear pull, or "long-pull" style brakes. Speed Dial 7s incorporate a dial that changes the modulation of the brakes, allowing you to perfectly dial in lever feel across the stroke.
- Left and right levers included
- Brake Lever Actuation: Long Pull
- Brake Lever Use: Left
- Intended Use: Mountain
- Ambidextrous design, bolt can be reversed on bar clamp top or bottom access
- Weight: 153g per pair
I love being able to adjust the feel of my brakes to just the right amount of modulation with a simple twist of the dial.
I noticed an increase in braking power as well. I'm able to pull the levers harder and more easily with the increased modulation.
One of the best and cheapest upgrades I've made to my bike!

Bottom line, you can get BB7s, front and back, with rotors, and these levers for around $120-140. Decent hydros cost that much for one end. The SD7s allow the BB7s to modulate nearly as well, with more adjustability, less complexity, and half the price.

The pull adjustment allows for modulation of the displacement of the lever when fully depressed.
My rear v-brakes are opened up more than my front brakes, but the adjustability of these levers allow me to compensate for my less-than-perfect rear wheel.
The Speed Dial 5's have only reach adjustment, but they are lighter and simpler. If your wheels are true and/or you don't need the extra adjustability, you might want to opt for the Speed Dial 5's instead of the 7's.
