I don't recommend using the road version of the BB7 with v-brake levers. For the moment I have this setup on my single MTB bike and I barely can make that stop (I had a set of the road version in my parts bin, but I'll order the MTB version this week). Stopping the added mass on a tandem within a reasonable distance will be almost impossible.
You need to squeeze the MTB levers proportionally harder to result in the same braking force as with road levers.
UNLESS you use MTB levers that can be switched to Canti/road lever cable pull (e.g. Performance bike generic MTB brake levers)
