Hi all,

New to this site, but I am in a bit of a pickle. The wife's bike got stolen not long ago, which resulted me in buying a barracuda racer. The only problem with this is, she does not feel comfortable using the dropped handle bar brakes all the time.

Her old racer was a raleigh with brake lever extensions, which she prefers, but I am struggling to find any that will fit or are available. Can any one help?

Thanks

Hopefully someone will have some s/h ones for you, but otherwise, these will also do it:

Pretty sure I've got some like this

....kicking about in the garage somewhere. I am never going to use them (he says tempting fate) so you can have them for a thank you.

PM me if you are interested.

Suicide levers! I have a pair of you can have for postage.

But doesn't your wife's new bike have STIs?

If so, I have a pair of cyclocross interruptor levers, which are really a better solution. Yours for £7 including postage.
