Dia-Compe Shot Lever
This unique brake lever from Dia-Compe caught our eye at Interbike. It’s designed with urban fixed gear riders in mind. The lever can be actuated with either hand, but not both. One side of the split lever pulls the cable like a conventional brake lever, the other lengthens the housing in the same fashion that a ‘cross lever functions. It fits a 25.4mm handlebar (with shims for 22.2) with a hinged clamp for easy removal. Retail price seems to range from $55 to $70 (which includes the Flexie), and they’re available in either black or silver.
