Touring - Travel Agent VS V-brake booster
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Anyone seen both of these and have an opinion?
The Boost seems to have nicer machining in the picture I saw, while the TA has a barrel adjust. I realize there is a lever that makes either redundant, and if I see one of those, I may order it.
I use Travel Agents with V-brakes and STI brake levers. They work perfectly well.

I've used travel agents on a couple of bikes. I don't personally like them though because they make a funny cable run to the brakes.
The work fine once installed and adjusted.
The lever in question is the Diacompe 287-V. A much better option, but one that won't work if you want to use "brifters" instead of bar-end or downtube shifters.
The C+ forum had a thoing on the 287-v levers, seem to be a bunch of unhappy users. And some happy ones. I'm keeping my eye on the thread.
