    in line brake levers with diacompe 287 v's

    i'm using v-brake specific levers on my cross bike. i'm wondering if i can use in-line brake levers with this set up, or whether anyone makes in-line levers with enough pull to work with v-brakes.

    I bet if you found out what model in-line levers come on some cross bikes that have v-brakes, you could get yourself the very same model for your bike.

    I mounted a pair of Performance-brand in-line levers on my girlfriend's bike with DiaCompe 287s and generic v-brakes. The in-line levers pull enough cable. No problem.
