Anyone know where I can find these? My Benotto's gum hoods are blackened and bubbly - very strange looking.

I see BananaBrain has them for almost $30 shipped on ePay.

I just bought brand new hoods and levers for my Trek on EBAY for $20 and some change. In fact, here's an auction going on right now. Other than that, try some LBS to see if they can locate a pair for you. That's all I did until I found a pair.

Know what you mean. I've got gummy hoods too. Love them but hard to find. I got lucky.

I use Dia-Compe hoods on my 600 levers. Work fine and fit almost perfect.

I forgot to say that they come a bit in the way when the lever is pressed, but nothing important (and this works kind of a return spring...)
