ProsConstruction, levers
The cable quick release is handy since it allows for quick wheel removal (changing a flat tube, regular maintenance).

Flared/curved levers makes for a nice feel to when braking from the hoods. The rubberish hood grips/covers seem to be of good quality.

Overall the construction is simple, rigid and I'm not surprised if these will last for a long time.
V Brakes And Drop Bars

By far the cheapest option, but with no snags, so why pay more? They give strong braking with plenty of feel. I find the hoods comfortable. They were easy to fit, look good and are well made.

If you're fitting drop bars to a flat barred bike, don't forget you'll need longer cables and in line adjusters too.

Proscheap, well made, well designed
From other sites, it appears that this lever is virtually identical to the similar Cane Creek lever, but at a lower cost. It works perfectly with the v-brakes on my bike (Avid) and has some useful features - a button to release the tension on the brakes for easy wheel removal, and "flared" levers which make for a more comfortable feeling when braking from the hoods. I am very impressed.

Hi, may i know this Tektro RL520 Aero V Brake Levers can use for Avid BB7(MTBversion) disc brake?? Thank You

Hi,

V-Brakes and MTB cable disc brakes use the same cable pull so these levers should be fine for use with your Avid BB7 MTB disc brakes.

Thanks.

I've a pair of these levers on which the hoods have been attacked by rodents whilst the shed over winter. Which of the wide range of rubbers you stock would you say is best fit to replace these, or did i miss Tektro items in my search ?

Thanks.

Hi,

Unfortunately there are not any replacement hoods available from Tektro's UK supplier for these levers so we are not able to order any. I am not aware of any compatible alternatives that we have in stock either I'm afraid.

Thanks.
