Any one use calipers other than shimano with there Dcl's. The banjo fitting on the avid juicy is the same as the shimano and LX lever set is only £20 on ebay thinking about giving it a try. Any thoughts?
I know they are a marmite thing but i got on with them well - until my bike was nicked - i just can't get used to the conventional shifters.
