Cane Creek Drop V Levers
CaneCreek Drop V Levers for linear pull brakes have a smooth throw and comfortable levers.
- Brake Lever Actuation: Long Pull
- Cable Type: Road
--Great feel to my hands. Closer to the broader tops of a Campy lever.
--They look very solid and fetching.
--They have their own quick-release built in to them which gives one more option for on the fly adjustment or dealing with brakes without a quick-release
--A little pricey compared to some comparable options
--Would be nice if there were replacement hoods readily available. They will wear that long.
Overall, good deal. These are so durable that after thousands of miles of riding them, I inadvertently smashed one of the levers into a fence. The plastic holding the pivot on one side was cracked and I thought surely it was shot. But I was able to pop the pivot back into place and it gave me several weeks more riding while I ordered the replacement and overcame my own laziness in installing it.
PROS: Ergonomic, Quick Release, Sturdy Design, Appearance
BEST USES: Commutingcity, Touring
The pull ratio is more appropriate with these new levers though it takes more hand strength for the same stopping power. Now the lever doesn't come so close to the bar all else being equal.
I was concerned that the more pointed hood (especially compared to the Cane Creek SCR-5) would bother me but it hasn't.
I'm happy with the quality and I like the quick release feature.
PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Durable
