    imageimageCane Creek SCR-5 "Æro" levers with black hoods BRL27 $42.95/Pr. buy button

    These are super brake levers for road bikes, made by Tektro.

    These low-friction levers have a high mechanical advantage,
    and can significantly upgrade the braking performance of an older bike without changing the calipers.

    They bear a very strong resemblance to Campagnolo Ergo brake/shift levers, only without the shift mechanism.
    Riders with large hands tend to find these especially comfy.
    They're very well made, with resin bodies and cold-forged 6061 aluminum levers, shaped for left/right hand individually.

    These levers also include a Campagnolo style quick release button,
    very handy if you are using them with older calipers that don't incorporate a quick release,
    or if you are using wide tires that require more clearance than a single quick release can supply.

    Cables sold separately.

    Auxiliary ("Cross", "Interrupter") Levers for Drop Bars

    DESCRIPTION




    Initially marketed primarily for cyclocross, these are also an excellent choice for the touring or long distance cyclist, permitting you to brake from the top part of the handlebar.

    Unlike the 1970s extension levers, these don't interfere with the main brake levers. They install in the middle of the cable run.

    These can also be used as primary levers without the normal drop bar levers.
