Replacing Exage Brake Hoods
So I have an older road bike with Shimano Exage aero levers, and one of my hoods is starting to tear. I haven't been able to find any NOS hoods to replace them with. Does anyone know of any other hoods that will fit well with this lever?
I actually had this problem yesterday when a hood finally tore. I just put the hood back on and wraped it up with an old tube. After that, I scuffed up the tube because it was a bit slick. The end result looks ugly and is a bit thicker, but it still fits my hand. If you really want to hack it. Try this.
I put a set of Nashbar hoods( the ones that come extra with thier cheapest aero leavers) on a set Exage 500's. They fit but did not come all the way down to the grey spacer in the front. I would say it looks good, but not great.
