so my friend just gave me Cane Creek Cross Stop brake lever with a shimano dual pivot alloy brake caliper and today it gave out on me. they worked alright for about two weeks or so but now after braking the pads dont go back to their original position. brakes are the thing i am worst at fixing so i took it to my LBS. they said that the setup will not really work on my fixie because it was not made for that kind of brake set-up. is my lbs full of ****? or are they really incompatible?
also, will TT style brake levers fit on chopped bullhorns? are there any other good brake setups for chopped handle bars?
thank you much for all your answers.
