    dual-pivot and flat bars

    I am converting a bike with drop bars to flat bars. The bike has dual-pivot brakes. Are there brake levers for flat bars and dual-pivot brakes?

    I use old cantilever and the cross interrupter levers on mine. If you want to go a bit more upscale Pauls make a great cantilever for about 100.00 . Personally I like the older diacomps.... you can get them in cool colors

    Any of the Shimano Flat bar road brake levers. BL-R550 in one that you can buy in several locations.

    Thanks. BL-R550 or BL-R770 is just what I'm looking for.

    Tektro RT354AG work great (& only $14). Use the cantilever setting. Any lever for cantilevers will work.
