Machine tech batwing look great at both anti and lever level. Work really well too. One of my regrets was reading a mint set, though on the whole prefer v brakes.

Controltech are also very nice lookers and stoppers, though I dont think they did levers. Resorted to using altec ones which are cnc livliness. Tech lite levers are also cool and as the name suggests, very light.

I like the old school scott/pederson brakes, suntour xc pro also nice, I think they were rebranded dia-compe.

Another vote for avid tri align here, never had any before until I got a set for my jmc build, and in fairness I thought they were pretty easy to set up, a little fiddly at first but if you nip the bolts a little, it takes the movement out of them whilst you line up the pads to the rim.
And they look ace I think :cool:

+1 for Dia Compe 987. I really like the spanner type centering.
