    Of course you can do things with a single universal lever and you can do with fingers only. However, for an average person I recommend a set of 3 plastic levers with hooks such as Kool Stop Tire...

    Wow, looks very much like my past setups that routinely relied on the Zinkens Dynashoe. However, I normally run my rollers against a dynamo track - for me that makes quite a bit of difference.

    I use two Zefal Dooback mirrors, left and right, mounted reversely, if I remember correctly. You can fold them out of the way for bike folding. No problem with car or suitcase travel.
