Tektro's. The modulation is surprisingly good actually. They feather well and when I want to lock up the wheel they respond in kind. There's no abrupt "snagging" of the rim if that's what you mean. I have had brakes do that and these don't. I think the stiffness of the Ultegra's that are on there now help a lot with that to. The Tektro R540 calipers that came off of the bike weren't nearly as powerful.

Those bullhorn Dura-Ace levers at Jensen are pretty nice but I'm not a real fan of bar end levers. I'll see how they work with the current levers and go from there.
