    for any of you veg-o-matic vegans out there i conjured up a simple recipe you may enjoy: sweat one diced onion, 3 cloves pureed garlic and some shredded carrot (about a cup) in a good amount of olive oil. add 500g or so of chickpeas and sprinkle with corriander and some 'zatar' (middle eastern spice, a mix of sesame seeds, sumach and thyme), deglaze with a little water and bang it in the oven and cook until most of the water is gone. a tasty appetizer if you're not in the mood for meat.

    In that case it shall be ribs, ribs and more ribs. And tofu ribs for the veg crowd. And beer. And corn on the cob, maybe some homemade slow cooked beans, slaw.. And then more beer. I won't be drafting anyone the next day on the ride though.

    So is the rule v-brakes levers work with canti brakes, or the other way around? Or not at all.

    Thanks for the stem JW, works great. All three bars fit in no problem. Now have a cruiser, flat and bullhorn bar set with levers and only takes about 2 minutes to switch out.

    I think V brake levers will work with cantis, but if you run V brake calipers you HAVE to use V brake levers.

    Yep v-brake levers work with canti brakes decently.

    V-bake levers pull more cable than canti levers, so you might need to set up your brake cable 'looser' than if you were running them with a canti lever, this is just so that the point in which the brake engages is in a comfortable spot and not right at the start of the lever movement.

    You wont have as much power or modulation, but they'll still stop you.

    If you are using v-brakes with canti levers, then you'll run into the problems. You need to use a device to amplify the cable travel of the lever. In this case you're better off just getting the correct lever.

    OT: I'm replacing my dual 17" CRT with either a dual LCD or CRT +1 setup. Any recommendations either way? Looking for either dual 22" Widescreen or dual 20" CRT + 19" 3rd monitor. Space is not an issue, neither is heat or power consumption.
