VeloBase lists a couple levers as c-Record levers. I would think only the lever in the upper-left corner is c-Record >>>

http://velobase.com/ViewSingleComponent ... 8&AbsPos=8

Can anyone confirm?

I have a bike with what I *think* is full c-record [now know to be Croce D'Aune NOT c-record].

The levers have a hole in the front of them (additional photos so someone who knows can confirm as c-record [or NOT])...

click to get big...

Cheers fiks, and np. Bike too big and due to be shifted on anyway!

edited to add that that since photos of brake and levers no use whatsoever to elev, left up only to allow thread to make sense...

Back on topic.

I think the plain version of the lever is the original type.

The levers with the slot at the front came a bit later. The holes where the cable nipple housing fits is also a bit different, it's not circular. I think it's still the C-Rec lever, but had the "power grade" feature.

Okay, thanks for your input

I thought there were two c-R

1) The early ones without QR and without power mechanism
2) The ones with QR and with the additional power mechanism

Levers with QR and without power mechanism I held for Chorus & co, but not c-R or CdA.

I also checked the catalogues present on the VeloBase site and no catalogue shows me c-R levers alike the Chorus ones.

Could be wrong though
