I'm building a bike with the same setup at the moment and I bought some Shimano levers designed for the job. V brake levers pull more cable so if you used them the pads would move from rest to the rim rather quickly but you wouldn't have much leverage power. Using levers designed for dual pivot on V brakes would have the levers reaching the handlebars before full brake force was reached.
