Are Campag brake levers any good?


Heavy but good. M730(or 735 dunno: 2 finger) is better.

Altek, controltech, tech lite are all ones I've owned that I'd call great levers. I'm sure there are others in addition to these and the ones you've mentioned.


I don't recall any levers made by ControlTech.

Any pics...?

My mistake, I meant machinetech. I regret selling a full set of these brakes and levers in black. Heres a pic found of a set in red.

Here’s a set in blue I’ve just cleaned up and weighed for the record 8)

Truth be told Pauls are the best levers ever and they are still being made and sold by the company. Are even classic King hubs still available?

Got to be tommaselli motorcross levers used on original stumpjumpers. Unbreakable, the Cadillac of levers!

Had this pair stashed for 30 years, just awaiting the right project!



Like many I own/ed many of the bling levers in this thread but the most comfy to use are the early Tommasellis and they look great on the early era bikes.
