    hah.. nice.

    Just installed my tektro cross lever and re-taped my bars in blinding red tape. There's something not right about the cross lever though, but I think I may have simply bungled the installation... It's like the brake isn't springing back after I use the lever. The cable seems like it's getting hung up on something.

    1. Follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color: pink.
    2. Stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green.3.
    3. Concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, many if not all of the pink dots will slowly disappear and you may only see a green dot rotating.

    hey, i noticed that once, long ago, in this thread, someone mentioned that a shop in toronto called urbane carries marinoni branded laminated leather toe straps. does anyone have pictures, or know if they still have them?

    i ride a marinoni, so obviously, i want a pair...or two.

    i've already emailed urbane about it too.

    Actually for that image all you need is step 2.

    2. Stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green.3.

    The red tape will give it a nice summer punch go for the red/black vittora rubino's as well A Nice1 2 punch.
    The lever i just put on was a tektro rx 2.0 seems good but the spring back wire is about a 16 gauge a little thin
    Just make sure the spring wire is on under side of the lever if not may need a new one if there's no spring.
    Cheers

    i have an older version of those tektro levers with no return springs;they work best with a brake with strong return springs of their own. i've used it with some cheaper quality tektro and shimano (sora/tiagra) calipers and they work best if you have enough bend in the cable housing, but it's important to get it the right length. too short and it will bind (be sort of "held" open as it's being pulled from underneath by the caliper) also try taking up some of the slop with the barrel adjuster on the side (or on the caliper).

    are you using it with drop bar levers or on it's own?

    I'm using it on its own and yeah, I think it might be binding in the cable housing.

    Eyefloater: where are those Paul levers?

    that'd be sweet if I was tall.
    I remember last fall they only had 58's or some rediculously large sizes like that.
    anyways, keep us posted on your Pina frameset!
