Those right-angled leverage enhancers that bolt through the fork and rear brake bridge, that Cannondales also used at some stage. Tektro also made them, called them LEDs (Leverage Enhancement Devices). Black, silver or red wanted - do not even have to have the bolts, just the alloy right angles.

I went to the website to buy a pair but there is a minimum order value of 50 Euros for parts. Damn!

Laurence,

I can also use 2. We could order those with a innertyre and such... and it should work.
