Hi. I'm looking for replacement brake lever hoods for 1985 Suntour Superbe brake levers. Original Suntour ones seem to be hard to source and quite expensive. I heard Dia Compe do hoods which fit fairly well - does anyone know the model? Thanks.

I'm not sure about dia compe, but the campag gran sport and record ones were the same pattern and interchangeable. So if you see campag replacements, they will fit

If you search ebay for Brake Hoods you'll get all the Dia Compe ones and the ones sold as Campag/Modolo/Galli fitting rather than Weinmann/Shimano should fit. It might be model 202/204 but that is just a guess from an old and addled memory.

I do have good experience with the one from Saccon... As far as you mean the non-aero ones. The Saccon does fit a lot of brands, Shimano, Weinmann, Campagnolo... and probably also Suntour...
