Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

All White Brake Lever?

Google ain't solving this problem. Any idea where to order one online?

Pretty slick.

I guess that's what I'll end up doing if there's nothing off the shelf. I bet some BMX company makes them though. Your way is super clean though. I'd buy a set off you.

Black levers stop better. Once you go black you never go back.

I looked ! and specifically I looked at BMX outlets, I couldn't find any (not to say a more tenacious search might not turn something up) - so I knocked some up myself.

I saw some the other day but they were a pair. I know you dont want a pair probably. Plus, that makes them cost double.

1 +1 = 2?

I might pick that up, depending on shipping and what-not.

I seem to remember the set was something like 60 bucks. Im not sure. That sounds about right cause Dan's has the lever for 20 each and theyre the cheapest in the USA id bet.
If youre not in a major hurry ill try to get over there and check it out.

If you are looking for a road aero lever, then a Shimano Sante will fit your bill. White hood, white lever, just a little silver on the hinge parts.
