So if your a weenie who uses down tube shifters why not go for non aero brake levers? Ok ok ok I know that there is a harder pull do to friction because of the xtreme housing angal (up and around) but a nice set of Mafac levers all drilled out can be as low as 140g and cheap too! there are other advantages like choice Dia Compe, Modolo, Mafac, Weinmann, CLB, and many more. Also you dont ues as much bar tape Because you dont need to go around the housing!
What do you think?
