Comments:

Given the popularity and no-fuss functionality of linear-pull brakes, I was surprised how few options exist for folks considering running these brakes on a bike with drop bars. As far as I could tell, the Dia Compe 287-V levers are the only levers available that will do this job (the other option is a pulley arrangement that allows the use of any drop bar brake levers). Since I didn't have any drop bar levers, I chose to buy the Dia Compe 287-V. The finish on the levers is nothing special. To me they look a bit plasticky and feel tinny (in comparison to the Ultegra brifters on my road bike). I find the metal-on-metal stop when releasing the levers a bit annoying. Perhaps one could fit a small rubber bumper within the lever, but for obvious safety reasons, I'm strongly inclined NOT to make any modifications that could even remotely hinder braking performance. After fitting these levers, I toured over 1000 miles through central Europe, including some rough and mountainous roads in southern Czech, and continuous rain in southern Germany and Austria. These levers worked absolutely fine the whole way, and continue strong. Despite a lack of alternatives, these levers do everything they need to.
