They do look low, donít they? But the top of the brake body is level with the top of the bars, which is how I have always mounted modern brakes.

I have so far moved the seat back and gotten a shorter stem, so I fit the bike well now. But I am still open to moving things around to see if I can improve this some more. The bar tape is old so it is easy to unwrap. Iíll move the levers up and see how it works. thanks, GB.
