I'm planning to build up a road tandem with Avid mechanical disc brakes. I know Avid sells a road version of it's disc brakes, but I'm just wondering if it's possible to set up the Avid MTB disc brakes with road levers.
-DiaCompe makes the 287V lever that is V-Brake compatible, so it should work with the Avid MTB disc brakes. However, the DC 287V is way overpriced for what is otherwise a very basic road lever.
-Are those intermediate cyclocross levers that are designed to fit on the tops of road bars capable of pulling enough cable to operate the Avid MTB disc brake?
-Are there any travel adapters that would enable a standard road lever to operate the Avid MTB disc brake?
