    Cross lever + Calliper, single? Recomendations?

    Im looking for a single cross lever to put on my track bike, it needs to have a hinge for easy removal. Does anybody have any recomendation, i was looking at the Kore cross levers (but they only come in a pair).

    Also for the caliper can you buy just one anywhere? any recomendations? will a Sora one do?

    I like my Tektro cross levers. They have a hinge on them to open fully. Also I haven't seen many options available to buy single levers, good luck with that.

    I have some forte levers and they are just ok, they feel like they flex a bit more than Id like. As far as calipers go, buy a good one! I had a crap tektro one which I really had to squeeze to get any stopping power, but then I picked up a Dura Ace Caliper on CL and it is phenomenal! sooo much more stopping power, I dont know if it is just the pads or what, but I would get this caliper if I were you. Although ultegra or 105 would probably be just as good...

    Even if you were running 25.4 bars, .6mm won't mean jack to a hinged cyclocross lever.

    Most road drops you'll come across are 26.0 though.
