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?

Tektro cross lever brake lever..

Is there anywhere I can pick up ONE of these for cheap? I am referring to the cross lever that comes on most of the bikes direct bikes. I am looking to ride SS and only have a rear one currently.

Also, anyone have a front one laying around that they don't need? If so, send me a PM please.

The thing is, I only need the brake lever. I already have a front and rear Tektro brake kit. I have a rear cross lever, and a front reverse brake lever. I am looking for a front cross lever for cheap so that I don't have two different style levers.

You might be better off buying a new set, I bought a set (Forte brand) for like $28.00 at Performance, and that price included new cables. Just sayin'

Thanks man. That sounds like a good deal, especially with the cables. I'll try my luck on here and ebay for a few more days and then look into the forte levers.
