Got these ‘Real’ levers - nice and simple design 8)


Pair of those just made decent money on evilbay...

Old XT/DX ones for canti's, the action in them is so smooth.

What about x-lite chicken stix? They look great, but I've yet to use them.

:lol:

I've got a set of the avid ultimates; how they shaved them to weight only 130g amazes me, as they feel so solid.

I think (I never got a weight photo) that my Kooka hydro levers were only around 140g too.

It was never my intention to start a ‘lightest brake levers’ competition - just happened to have my scales and multiple sets of levers to hand :lol:

We're all weightweenies at heart, right?


FWIW, I think my favourite levers of all time (except magura, obviously) are shimano m739 V brake levers. the shape is excellent, they look great, and really work.
