I have got myself into a spiral of upgrades. I have been rebuilding my 94 Orange P7 which was tricked with full XTR.

However I put on some Pace RC36 forks which meant I had to change the Cantis to V Brakes. The problem is I now need to get some compatible shifters as the Xtr Canti shifters won't pull correctly even with Travel Agents. The other problem is the levers have integrated shifters so I either need

- Levers and shifters combined
- Levers with hangers for my existing shifters
- levers and a set of hangers.

So can anyone help me. Happy to go to Xt as on a budget

I can assist with a full set of Deore XT V-brakes if interested (silver) - on a Bontrager that I'm just about to receive? Have some brake levers, but they're only LX which is a bit lame....

I forgot to say I have some XT v brakes. So it's just the lever shifter issue
