Mechanical disc brake-compatible levers for small hands
I'm looking for some recommendations. I just set up my Marin Mt. Vision with a 100mm fork and Avid mechanical disc brakes so I could have a longer travel, long wheelbase bike. I set up some Avid SD-7 levers for a short reach, but I just don't like the curve to the lever. I have small hands (at only 5'3") that really don't fit Avid levers. I really like the Kooka Racha's and Paul's I have on my other bikes, but don't know how well these would work with disc brakes. The Avid's have leverage adjustment that the Paul's don't.
How critical do you think the leverage adjustment is? They're pretty much just set at the factory default. Anyone using Paul's compact love levers with Avid mechanical discs?
