I chose #2 . Best single investment I made in my bike when upspeccing it to my tastes. Brakes use road pads/holders, so they clear the fork blades and flop open when released. They work perfectly well with normal v-brake levers.
They're designed to work with STI shifters. Define "perfectly well"? Mini-V and V-brakes are not considered to be compatible. I'm guessing they're pretty grabby.
