    new lever for my bike

    suggestions for a new lever. i have drop handlebar levers on it now. im going to take the back brake off so i wont need the lever, and it will leave the front lever on, the problem is this will look stupid with one drop lever. so i need suggestions on one lever i can put on my bars that are low profile and wont easily bee seen. i was looking at these

    Keep both of the hoods, having the bullhorn position for the win.

    **** I run brakeless and my drop bars have hoods.

    i guess its about preference. i feel that if there is no brake on the back, there is no point in having a lever upfront, and if i take one off, i personally think it will look ****in stupid with only one. and i dont think ive ever used the bullhorn position when i ride anyways

    Yeah, I wouldn't give up my hoods position for anything. Screw that noise.

    Drop bars are MADE for riding in the hoods, I wouldn't loose my hoods for anything.

    In a fit of fashion, I may one day switch the brake levers on my fixed gear to some busted up STI I have. Boy are those things comfy.
