    Just came back from a ride where I had a short and slow tumble. Picked the bike up and noticed that this lever was slightly bent near the pivot where the material is narrow-er. Bent it back and rode out. Never a worry until today. Doesn't need replacement.

      Comments about Avid Speed Dial 7 Levers:

      Bought for my 10 yr. old sons 26" mountain bike. Used with cable disc brakes. I really like all of the adjustment on these levers. I made the reach shorter for his smaller hands. The leverage can be adjusted, I made the front brake have less leverage so he does not grab too much front brake. Great levers and nice price.

          I've never had a brake lever with a variable mechanical advantage. Nice idea, and a nice lever. Wish they came in plain silver. the dark color is not that attractive, and when it gets beat up, it will look worse than plain silver would.

              Comments about Avid Speed Dial 7 Levers:

              These are very good brake levers at a good price point. After switching to these, I noticed a better feel in the lever and the ability to regulate the brake pressure. I like that they are very minimalistic in design and do not clutter the bars on my single speed. The dial-in lever to adjust the cable tension is a neat feature but I have not had to use it. Also, there is a screw to change the position of the brake lever in relation to the handlebars, making it closer with less reset. I just left it where it was normal, but this feature is cool to have.

                These levers perform great. I love the dial to tune the lever feel to match front and rear based on adjustment of the brakes.

                      I have these paired with the BB7s front and back on an agressive hardtail. Basically, these levers turn the BB7s from decent brakes into the absolute best for the money. The BB7s can be grabby, but these levers allow you to adjust that so that they now modulate really really well. They have reach adjustment, cable tension, and lever feel adjustment. Combined with the BB7s pad adjustment, you can make the brakes feel however you want them to.

                      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.

                      I replaced some older Avid BB levers/calipers... not due to breakage or poor function - mostly because I was going thru some general upgrading. I'll use the old set on my next project bike. Avid makes great stuff. I haven't tried their wet brakes but these have plenty of power for me @6/6,260lbs, and are simple to fit/adjust.
