    Brake Levers

    What you all think about the eBay/Amazon $20 brakes vs pricier ones? If I go SS on my bike build I'd like a better component unless it just isn't a major difference in brands/stopping power.

    Links to the brakes or brake levers might be of some use.

    Brake Levers

    Well I bought some these last year for a beater MTB and they work fine maybe have a little wobble (up and down).

    I was planning to get these but the price diff doesn't seem like much.

    These levers get good reviews.
