Stupid question.

Do Oddy Evolvers come with levers?

I'm sick of riding dirt brakeless and after hearing how good Evolvers are I might go down and get some today, but I dont wanna use my stock tektro lever.

And if you want to dish out $40 something, then look into the Nokon, its supposed to be very nice...

Another stupid question, I know they come with two sets of springs, what are they for? How easy are they to install, and mantain?

And I'll be running these on sun ZX-25 rim, what pads should I get?

Springs affect the response. Stiff spring means more resistance at the lever, lighter is the opposite.

Thanks.

Also, they say the set comes with the London Mod, I dont need to use this right? I can just run a single straight cable and a crossover cable right?

And what pads will get me the best modulation on a black rim?

Yes, you can run a straight cable with your Odyssey brakes...

Ouch, I only had enough for the Evolver, came to $64.

I'm going back later for the lever and cable.

do you like your rims? I have those rims on my bike, and my plan was to upgrade them, but they seem to be holding up really good, so I think im gonna stick with them for a while.

Why wouldn't he? They make well-thought out and tested parts, and they have the best costumer service in the industry.

No, I dont really like my rims that much, I'm upgrading my rear when I get the chance, and will eventually replace the front.

Also, I finally got it all put together and they work great, but the pads really suck so I'm getting a set of koolstops some time this week.

so far my bike is coming together quite well I think.

Frame- 2004 DK General Lee (white).
Cranks- Profile 175mm (not sure about model).
Wheels- Sun ZX-25, going to change the back one soon, it's cracked.
Tires- Back=Primo wall Front=K-Rad.
Brakes- Oddy Evolver and trigger Monolever with slic cable (all blue except the lever).
SeatPost- Voxom.
Seat- Stock DK.
Bars- Haro Slim in the raw finish.
Stem- Stock DK stem, flipped.
Pedals- Oddy Twisted.
Hubs- DK Macho.
Grips- Josh Stricker signature.

Get Odyssey 1X4 or 2X4. Much stronger posts & work just as good as koolstops.

I wasn't even aware that they made the 2x4s anymore. Who the hell still runs super-wide walled rims?
