    Brake Lever.

    Hello,
    Im in need of a brake lever for my drop bars I dont want standard road brake levers becuase im only running a front brake. So, i was wondering if any of you kind folks could help me find a MTB style lever to attach up near the stem. I would like it to be a small lever not some guady long thing.

    Thanks a bunch,
    westyman

    if they are road bars you should think of running regular road aero levers (two of them) because of the extra hand position...

    Swapping bars is pretty easy if you have a pop-top stem.

    Aero levers are really great, and I would consider them for the hand position. Track bars look nice, but unless you can comfortably stay in the drops for an extended period, you may find yourself wishing for a different hand position.

    With that statement on the track bars, what are some suggestions for drop bars?
