Shimano Brakes Parts
#1
I'm thinking about putting on new brakes and brake levers on my LHT. I am looking at the Shimano BL-R400 brake levers and Shimano Cantilever brakes BR-R550. I don't like what came on my bicycle. Anyone use these brakes parts before if so how good are they. I am some what of OLD School ways.

Well guess I am not thinking any more I put these on but would still like to see what others folks has to say about these parts.
My dad always told me a Sledge a matic can fix any thing.

Those brakes should work ok. Just make sure you've got either canti brake levers or road levers, as they won't work with v-brake levers.
