clipless pedals + inexperience = broken pieces
Yesterday I headed out to learn to ride with some new shoes that clip into the pedals. It felt weird at first but I got used to it and my confidence went up too fast. So I thought that I could try this new trial that just so happened to be filled with rock gardens (bad idea for beginners). On this trial I discovered that I had no idea how to quickly dismount from the cool new pedals and WHAM! The bike tipped over into a conveniently located rock and snapped my front brake lever.
So now I need a new brake lever / mount and I would consider replacing the other one too. What would yall suggest for brake levers? I have a Cannondale Prophet 600 (the stock lever broke) and I like the idea of a replacement that is cross country oriented. Also I need it to cost under $100.
