in my mountain bike world i never switched brake levers themselves ever, i had xtr's and thats what i used. Same with my bmx, i've been using the same old cheap ass levers but upgraded the entire braking system. Sadly they just got overlooked. I think they are poverty freestyle levers, regardless, they are cheap and crappy. But my question is would upgrading to a better brake lever drastically change the quality of my breaking. I am using a set of diatech hombres and i just havn't been able to get them to work how i want them to (be able to lock my wheel up completely) I like the profile though and they are nice and low, just about every other brake we checked didn't make the clearence between my chain, thats what ig et for having a smaller sprocket up front.
So would getting a good lever make a big difference in my breaking power? Also, what woudl you recomend for mounting it on the bend of my bars, i had my eye on getting a diatech dirty harry, any other suggestions?
I was also considering just getting a set of oddessy evolvers or 990's but i woudl rather just make what i got work rather than getting more new parts.
Also, i'm using a oryg gyro, could that be messing with my braking?
