Best brake levers type for a bullhorn
#1
Hello All,

I'm upgrading my old race bike that I'm using only in the city to commute between home and work with a chrome bullhorn handlebar.


I would tend to think that the best brake levers type would be crosstop levers. like those:
TEKTRO RL726
http://www.tektro.com/02products/11ql.php
CANE CREEK CROSSTOP
http://www.canecreek.com/component-other?product=road-crosstop

But there is also brake levers like those:
http://www.canecreek.com/component-other?product=200tt
or the classical
http://www.canecreek.com/component-other?product=levers-scr-5


What would you use keeping in mind that I only commute in city daily.

Ox

NB the new bar diameter would be approx 25.4mm.

The best one I see is the one you are looking at the 200tt they work good on bull horn handle bar

+1 on the 200tt (at least that style). They put the levers under your hands so you can brake quickly, have a longer lever for more leverage and control than the crosstop type, but don't use up bar space like traditional drop bar levers.

I like them. I will surely go for it.
Thanks for the input.
