Looking for some stuff.

Not sure where to post this one ---- mods move it if necessary. I'm looking for the vinyl hoods for my brake levers. Mine are OEM and heavily mildewed, secondly can anyone recommend a pump? Thanks in advance. Spkt

Hoods are specific to the make of the lever...usually. Google is your friend. I found this in 0.28 seconds

For a pump, look no further than a Topeak Road Morph.

If you have Shimano aero levers, the brake hoods that come on Nashbar's aero levers are an exact fit for replacement. At $12.99 for a set of brake levers and two sets of hoods, you can't really go wrong.

The components on this older bike are Shimano Exage. Not sure which stuff would work. Spkt

If you want the Nashbar hoods, I put a set of the brakes on a bike I flipped and I'll never use the extra hoods. I'll give them to you for shipping.

Tellyho thanks for the offer. I'll check my LBS and see what if any they may have.

Oldyeller I see you are a Nishiki lover. My current new old cycle is a Nishiki ---- can you date them by the serial #? Mine is WG10773 Best ----- Spkt

I love the Road Morph! Spring for the model with gauge.

I'm not an expert on Nishiki serial numbers, but T-Mar over in Classic and Vintage is.

EDITED:


The road morph is the best of both worlds. I'm going to get myself one, too.
