Now that there are appropriate drop-bar brake levers for V-brakes without the use of a travel agent, does it make sense to go with V-brakes on a new build?
I'm building up a LHT and will need to buy both brake levers and brakes. I have a strong preference to go with barcon-style shifters, so I don't need integrated brake lever / shifter compatibility (e.g. Shimano's STI).
Other than having an unused cable stop, is there any downside for me to go with V-brakes and the appropriate levers from Cane Creek or Diacomp?
I apologize in advance if this has been discussed to death... I couldn't find quite the same angle covered in a search.
