    Shimano 600 Brake Lever Replacement Hoods

    Anyone know of a "perfect" fit or close enough replacement for old Shimano 600 brake lever hoods?
    Any assistance greatly appreciated! =))

    pics or the levers/hoods don't exist.

    in seriousness, a picture or model number would be helpful.

    Dia Compe 204 non-aero hoods are a close enough fit for the Shimano 600 non-aero levers.

    +1, I tried these and they fit pretty well.

    if those dia-compe hoods fit, does that mean the ubiquitous cane creek hoods one can find anywhere ('new' on ebay for around $10 delivered) will fit just as well?

    The Cane Creek hoods are a sloppy fit and need to be modified a bit to accommodate the levers when depressed. You might check out ebay seller Mike Fraysse who apparently has an inexhaustible supply of the correct NOS levers at $29.99 a pop.

    Those are not exactly the same, and they are a little looser. On the other hand they're cheap and easy to find, and IMO they fit OK.
