Shifter Brake Lever Combo Upgrade
Come winter I plan on rebuilding my bike with some upgrades and one of the upgrades is shift brake combo assemblies. I'm really not happy with the system currently on the bike.
My bike has disk brakes and I would like to use these. The don't specify disk brake application, but I can't see why they wouldn't work.
Here is what I'm looking at.

RE: Shifter Brake Lever Combo Upgrade
The EF-51 set will work fine with mechanical disc brakes as long as they are specified as V-brake compatible. That set is. Be careful shopping, though. Some 51's are made for cantilever brakes.
