Shimano DX combo levers and V-brake Compatibility
I have a 7 speed DX shifter-brake combo from 1993, and was wondering if these levers would work with V-brakes. The current brakes are DX cantis, which I thought were good, until I tried Avid Vees. From research here, I know that some Shimano levers have a V and C, or L and H setting, but these don't seem to have any adjustability. The shifters are rapid fire, and work great, so I don't really want to mess with them. The setup is on an aluminum bike, so I can't really go to 8/9 speed.
Thank you in advance for any insight.
