I'm planning to upgrade my 07 Downtube IXFS to drop bars. Trouble is, I can only find one drop-bar lever for V brakes, and it's a Dia-Compe (no problem there) which is priced at 3x the cost of their standard drop-bar levers (this part is a problem). The other solution appears to be Travel Agents, a pair of which come in at (guess?) 3x the price of regular brake levers, and then I'd have to buy the levers on top!
I really don't want to drop £30 on bog-ordinary brake levers. Is there another way?
