• Most of these levers are for use with rim-brake calipers (side-pull, centre-pull, dual-pivot) and are generally also compatible with cantilevers, ‘road’ cable discs, drum brakes, u-brakes and roller-cam brakes.
  • For drop bars the clamp is generally 23.8mm, or 2.2mm for flat bars – though this is not always the case – and obviously the clamp size of brake levers should match that of the area of the handlebar you intend to fit it to!
  • Cross top levers (aka inline) are technically auxiliary devices for cyclocross racing.  Mounted close to either side of the handlebar stem, inlines are also commonly used on fixies & tourers; they work as above and are available with various clamp sizes from 22.2mm to 31.8mm.
  • V-brake levers are the exception – in that they pull a greater amount of cable half as hard – and are also compatible with ‘mountain’ cable disc calipers.
  • Some levers can work with both calipers/cantilevers and v-brakes (which obviously makes them more versatile) and have a switch (or dial or grommet) to adjust cable-pull.
