I know the newest 105-DA STI levers pull more cable and only 'work' with same generation calipers. I am interested to learn how well these levers work with V-brakes. Not with mini-v brakes, not with travel agents; just regular v brakes with current gen STI levers and their altered mechanical advantage.
If there are, as I assume, already relevant threads on this matter, please link to them (sans snark about location of seach box plox).
Context: Just fleabayed used Tricross Elite frameset with intent to use for double centuries or beyond and fireroad riding. And I hate cantis.
