Thanks for the responses guys,

hurin are they that yellow as in the picture or are they more tan?


foz, do they have holes for the gear cables to run through like on my bike in the link below?

Also do you think the ones i linked earlier would fit?

Cheers

I think they are the more natural tan, but I cant vouch for these ones, as I bought my ones from the bikeworld usa website.

I just checked the site and they no longer stock the generic tan brake hoods, they do however stock the cane creek versions which are the same

http://www.bikeworldusa.us/Dia-Compe-Br ... 71HQ62.htm

I think it would cost around $17 posted (£9 english)so if you buy the hoods with a few other bits combine postage it would be worthwhile.. the hoods would be branded with cane creek though so maybe no good..

mine are the aero type, they don't have holes. In a pinch you could probably put some holes in, but you're probably better off looking for the real thing
