your brakes are worn out? That doesn't make any sense. Do you mean your brake pads are worn out?
Just get some new pads : Coolstop eagles or something.
If you need a lever, get the dia-Compe tech 77 lever

if you need new brakes, get diatech hombres. Don't fall for the expensive brake setups, they all work the same

Not necessarily. Some have better braking response.

Yeah, but how responsive do you really need it to be? It seems like the biggest difference can be had with a stiffer cable.
