Are Cane Creek Drop V levers compatible with road brake cables or MTB brake cables? Specifically, road cables and MTB cables have different nipples that sit in the brake lever, and I need to know which type these work with.

Anyone have experience with these brakes? I've searched for awhile, and have yet to find any reference to cable compatibility whatsoever.

The website has drawings that show roadbike cable ends.

I can confirm now that this is the correct answer. – Stephen Touset Mar 1 '12 at 4:34
