Pay attention, because a taiwanese brand bought the box brand and started making cheap knock-offs....

Yep - these levers do have that 'cheap' feel to them - but what wouldn't compared to the billet-hewn orginals!

I bought them because I wanted some cantis (which are okay quality-wise) that went with the set of original levers that I bought off Simon. Never seen 'proper' cantis though - did they exist?

The wife gets the cheapo levers, natch... :lol:

I remember those Onza cranks, they have the same profile, no wonder they remind you of it.
Maybe cheap, but looks funny.
