I have one - never used it - found it too wide to easily get under the bead.

only got one left, lost one on dartmoor bitd, was chuffed to still have mine after all those years still in random bike bits boxes
The new ones come in crazy colours, so losing levers is a thing of the past!!! I went for pink on the basis that it would blend in with the least number of backgrounds :oops:

Now dust caps are another matter entirely - I lose at least 50% of mine, having put them down in a 'safe' place. I suppose I could go pink with those too - just need to find the right Zolatone/pink Team Marin to match :wink:

Regards

Weren't these levers named "Milk Levers" because they were made from recycled plastic milk containers?

Great idea.



I believe so, and I still use mine

Yeah milk cartons. :lol:

I still have mine from a mid 90's MBUK, but rarely use them. Mostly find I can get tyres on and off with my hands.

Yeah, and the world's changed a fair old bit.. As for bikes, nothing's new, apart from tubeless mtb tyres I guess..
