Long reach calipers and levers
I have an older Peogeot frame currently set up as a fixie that I want to turn into a single speed with front and back breaks. I would like to try dual pivot breaks as I heard they are nice. I have Nitto promenade bars which I believe take a mountain bike type lever- I was thinking of getting Shimano BL-R440 levers.
My question is- will these levers work well with a long reach dual pivot calipers? I've heard that the shimano calipers require the sprung shimano levers to work nicely- Am I then out of luck in using these breaks with the promenade bars? is this also true of any dual pivot caliper such as the cheaper Tektro? Are there any better alternatives for setting up these bars with dual pivot breaks?
Any advise is appreciated- Thanks!
