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? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

TT/reverse brake lever for nitto rb021

i was wondering if anybody knows of or is currently using tt/reverse levers on there rb021. i have been searching around and i can only find levers that fit 19-21mm. seeing that the rb's are 26mm im not sure if these will be too small for the bar ends. any help is appreciated.

The 26mm measurement is external, at the clamp, not the end where levers go inside.

On a brake lever that has a range of expansion from 19-21mm, it should be a no-brainer.

No one else is understanding that. Unless he wants to cut his bar in half at the stem clamp surface, and try to install the lever there.
