    I have used any levers with my old set of mechanical disc brakes. Always worked fine for me.

    Can you use any old cable brake lever with disc callipers, or are they different in some way?

    I have some dual control deore lever/shifters that I want to upgrade my wife’s bike to cable discs with if possible. They came on a bike with v brakes, does this matter.

    As long as they’re V levers you’ll be fine.

    Yup V-brake levers will be fine.

    Used some old XT levers with Tektro cable discs they were actually pretty good.

    Non-v brake levers will work with the road version of, for example, BB7s
