    Bravo!
    Here's my cheap but neat-ish arrangement, very much in the same spirit. Extremely cheap/salvaged plastic brake levers turned back-to-front to get the cables out the way, and bar-end shifters, which are fairly cheap new.

    Are the mechanical discs lacking in any way that would make you would fit hydraulics? I'm interested as I want to upgrade a hybrid from V- brake to disc. Should I be ok with mechanicals or are hydraulics the way to do it?

    If you start your own thread you'll probably get a few more replys.

    Generally the cheaper mechanical discs are pretty rubbish.
    Avid BB7s are the only mechanial brakes i've tried that were any good; but i'm sure there must be others.
