    anyone know of any reverse levers tat are compatible with v-brakes?
     
  2. Reverse levers? Like the ones which install in the end of the bar? I'm quite sure that none are compatible with linear pull brakes.

    yes, those.

    There must be at least one that does :biggrin:
     
  4. I'm 100% sure that there isn't.

    The kind of bikes which use them don't have linear-pull brakes.

    There used to be a widget available which converted linear brakes for use with 'normal' levers, it's the kind of thing Thorn might sell.

    hmm, just been doing some searching and saw some bad reports on the v-daptors, luckily i saw some post praising the tektro mini-v. Anyone had any experience of the mini-v?

    so im right in thinking that if they work with drop bar aero levers they will be fine with reverse levers too?
     
  13. Yup.
