    Brake Levers

    Hi guys,

    I hope you can help me with this. I bough a single speed from a friend but I need to make some adjustments.
    It has these cheap and flimsy Tektro RL720 brake levers and I want some higher quality ones.
    Already exchanged the brake caliper itself with Shimano Tiagra.

    Now the problem. The bar diameter is 23,8 or 24mm and I can't find any nice SILVER brakel levers that fit the design of the rest of the bike.
    There's these ones
    Avid Speed Dial SL Brake Lever Reviews - Mtbr.com
    but I can't figure out the clamp diameter and apparently they are not soled separately.

    Can you guys recommended me any brake levers that would fit my bike.

    Thanks,
    Klefisch

    I'm not sure what to recommend, as the Tektro RL720 is far from cheap and flimsy ... :-/

    I use the RL721s and am happy with them. Definitely never seemed flimsy to me.

    You can buy the Avids individually but they are made for linear pull and mechanical disc brakes. Also not 23.8/24mm diameter.
