Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Compatible break levers

I am BRAND NEW to road bikes. I got myself a Matsu old style road bike and wanted to upgrade the brake levers and get the brake line under the grip tape. Is there any reason I couldn't change out my old style levers with these?
