Hello. I'm looking for some inexpensive brakes for my bike. Those bmx or mtb levers would be nice. Trying to get the cheapest with ok stopping power.

You know the cheaper you get, the more you risk it.
But this is a good deal here, I just slapped these on and they're fairly decent. I've heard many reviews about people saying the skid-pads suck, but that's just a $3 fix.
$35 shipped, you can't complain.

Do you think having 2 front and rear brakes is necessary while riding SS?
I'd suggest you using one front and one rear brake rather than two. Because you don't have any additional stopping power on the rear, dual brakes is the best option. If something goes wrong with the front brake, you're not doomed or if the braking conditions are less than optimal you have some extra braking power.
I have that Tektro lever and a Sora front brake I'll sell you for $25, PM me if you're interested.
