    Where can I get these Dia Compe Aero Gran Compe hoods?

    These hoods http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...4c3ad&Enum=103
    for these levers http://velobase.com/ViewComponent.as...640ab&Enum=118

    I can only find one NOS pair in brown on eBay for $40... I'm looking for a cheaper used black pair if possible. Does anyone know if other hoods are compatible? Dia Compe 287?

    I feel your pain. Love the levers but the hoods are hard to find. The ones that come up on Ebay for a decent price are usually pink or yellow or similar. Gum ones are like you said, pricey. I don't think I've even seen black. I don't know of anything else that will fit, but if someone else does I'm all ears.

    The levers you linked are 250s, the hoods 252s. I don't know if they are the same, or if the 251 hoods I recently bought on eBay are either, but they certainly all look very similar.


    I looked at my eBay and paypal, but not sure how much the hoods cost. IIRC it was <$20.
