    Brake Lever!!!!!

    Can anyone please tell me of a brakelever to fit the fat part of my nitto bullhorns (26mm). I had the same problem on my old nashbar bulls. I want the brake to fit right next to my stem.

    BTW, picked up my IRO Mark V personally from Tony. Wow!!!! This bike rocks and so does Tony. Way better feel to it than my old Langster.

    Hopefully Someone can tell me of a brake lever to fit my needs.

    Thanks,
    rlh184

    The Tektro RX2 fits 26.0 and is super minimalistic...Pretty little thing!

    make sure you don't get the RX2.1 (its for 31.8)

    I'm rocking a 'cross brake level (Snafu) next to the stem of my profile airwings.
    I try not to use it, but when I do it works just fine.

    I'd start checking out other cyclocross type brakes. You can get the kind are designed to fit next to your stem without having to juryrig something.
