TT/Bullhorn handle

Hey,

Another new guy looking for help. I bought a Lemond Fillmore a bit ago and recently tried a friends SE bike that has a dropped bullhorn handle. I really want to make the switch and I've been looking at the Nitto RB-021, but I'm unsure as to what type of brake levers will fit. I was looking at the Tektro RX 4.1 brake levers. Do I have to get levers that have the exact same width as the tube? Or if I purchase a lever that's slightly smaller in diameter, will it be fine to shim it? Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks alot,

Josh
