Strengths: Very nice levers, at least doubled my braking power over the stock Tektro livejasmin levers, now 2 fingers can stop me even at 25 mph.
Weaknesses: Speed Dial feature could have more range, sometimes there's a scratching noise at certain points in the speed dial adjustment, they could've used tighter tolarances, but at only $20, that's to be expected
At $20 on amazon, this is the most important upgrade on your new bike besides the front derailleur
