Just a nice lever!!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I've got these on my commuter and they are great!! They are a good looking lever on the bike and the "flat rate pull" gives an excellent solid feel. I'm using them with a Shimano mechanical disc and it's an excellent combination. These are a true two finger (unlike many on the market) and are really slick in black/black. Basically a great value, classic design that really beefs up you stopping power & looks great.
Also they are boxed as a pair I've brought two pairs and love them!!

These brake levers look and feel well made. The action is smooth and the levers do not rattle from side to side like some I have used in the past. The adjusters also seem better than average.

A really good upgrade for my dad's crosstrail, they are a really solid feeling brake lever which has improved the performance and he says the bike is now much better than it was before.
