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)

apex is 39-49mm reach...too short for a steamroller

look for 47-57mm - tektro, shimano, & cane creek all have them

yeah, the longer reach is what you'll need.

Tektro R538 with R200 levers is what I did.

They work great.
