    Bullhorn brake levers?

    Where do you get the bullhorn end levers? Or are they just the same as the regular flatbar ones?

    Speaking of Cane Creek TT levers, mine has always been a bit loose. It's tight enough that it can't be pulled out, but it swivels left and right still, no matter how much I tighten it. Anyone else have this issue?

    Nope, mine fit nice and tight. It could be that the little plastic expander thing inside the bars has cracked. Take it out and inspect it.

    I have that problem too. I just think it's my Nitto RB-018 bars. The lever is not going to fall off, but I can move it around.

    If that's the case, try shimming it.

    Yeah I have Nitto RB0-21's. I'll try adding a shim, but I already thickened the tape to make it stay, so I'm not too hopeful.

    The tape may be adding to the problem. The expanding plug wants to wedge itself up against something solid, not squishy.

    The shims didn't fit in the RB-018's with the Cane Creek TT levers.

    So you were able to get the Cane Creek 200TT levers on the Nitto rb-018s despite sites saying those bars don't accept bar-end levers.......im looking to do this.
