I recommend this product
ConsNone really
ProsNice modulation, not flimsy, light weigh, look good.
Lovely good looking brake levers, ability to alter the pull ratio for 'v' brakes or calipers very useful, and not noted in discription. Also fact that brake cables not mentioned, I bought a set of cables and then found cables in with levers, this made them a little more expensive than necessary
Good Service And Product

Regarding:SHIMANO Ultegra BL-R780 Brake Levers For Flat Handlebars
By

Hi,
Can you tell me whether these particular levers will work well on a road bike to flat bar conversion with side-pull calipers?
These will work fine with Shimano ROAD calipers or any caliper that uses a short cable pull.

Can these be used with Cantilever Brakes?
By

I have an old Dawes tandem I'm converting to flat bar, originally fitt4ed with Weinman cantilever brakes. The V- Brakes I've bought are very tight on the front due to the "Narrow" post spacing on the forks. I could go back to the Original Weinmann brakes IF I can find a suitable straight bar lever ... Without paying the price of Pauls of course :)
Thank you for your enquiry, yes these are compatible with calliper or canti brakes, they are not suitable for v brakes

Shimano BL-R780, does this means that these are black coated as your photo shows silver?
By

If these are black and I will place an order for them.
Hi there,

Unfortunately these are silver. The BL stands for Brake lever.

Thanks.

I am building a all day riding bike with straight handlebars, trying to kit out with Shimano 105 equip. The brakes are a problem can you advise
Regards Andrew Wright
our item # 16337 Shimano BR-R650 Caliper Brake - Deep Drop 47 - 57 mm would seem best. these levers will operate any of our side pull brakes.
