    Time-trial lever on flop-n-chops?

    Has anyone else tried putting time-trial brake levers on a flopped & chopped drop handlebar cut at the bend? My main concern would be that the bend would prevent adequate seating of the lever in the bar.

    This person seems to have done it okay: http://fixedgeargallery.com/2008/may...lakeCondry.htm

    Edit: If it makes a difference, I may be picking up a single Tektro RX 4.1 lever on CL: http://corvallis.craigslist.org/bik/689858843.html
