    help finding brake levers for handlebar

    ok so i recently bought a new handlebar (i will put the link to the handlebar at the bottom), but the brake levers that i already had would not slide onto the new handlebar. i am kind of new to building bikes and need some help finding new brake levers that will fit on this handlebar. thanks.

    A 44cm Kilo TT should work just fine as a brake lever.

    The seller you bought the bars from has brake levers as well. From the looks of it you'll need a set with a 25.4 clamp diameter or 26.0 and use a shim from a aluminum can or something.

    Also, might I suggest getting some of these. You know, in case you want to share your handlebar with somebody else.
