    TT brake lever for bullhorns, where can I buy ONE!

    I just got some bullhorn bars for my old schwinn traveler. I am looking for a TT type brake lever that plug into the bar ends. I only need 1 lever and haven't been able to find any locally or online that aren't sold in a pair.

    Anyone got a link to where I could get one lever?

    no.

    buy a pair and suck it up.

    maybe sell to a friend or keep it if you want to ever have a rear brake or make your bike look none-weird with just one reverse pull lever.

    My LBS offered to just sell me one when I bought my set...I opted for the pair though because I like symmetry.

    CaneCreek 200TTs are symmetrical, so buy a pair, and if you break one, you still have a spare.

    they are relatively cheap, so get a pair and offer to sell the spare to the next fellow that poses the very question you came on board asking. You'll be his saviour..

    Buy a pair, and then buy a spare bike to put the other lever on.
