Brake levers for caliper
#1
hey guys. i have a cheap roadmaster bike (got it for free) with some kool stop pads and a few upgrades, but nothing major. I am looking for new levers that would fit my bike. All the levers say they will only fit v or cantilever. From what I heard, caliper, cantilever,u,etc. are interchangeable but v pull is it's own lever b/c of how hard it pulls. Would any of these work?

I would go with the 3rd choice. You have a Roadmaster? I have two. Does it look like this one (probably better looking too lol) http://forums.bikeride.com/thread-1475.html





or maybe newer?
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

They should but if you want to be 100% sure go ahead and write Niagra Cycles and asked them if the bar mount has an adjustable screw. Sounds kind of corny but definitely a good question. Other then that yes.
