Novice to the disc brake game.
Have some TRP Spyre SLC mechanical discs on my new bike. Currently running SRAM drop brake levers but I want to move to flat bars.
Any recommendations for some flat bar levers? Can I choose any? Apologies for the noob questions.
Shimano r550 are nice and cheap. Used to come with cables too IIRC.
Thanks man! Good cheap option. Considering something a little fancier however as it’s for my ‘good’ bike
Not many options available as you need short-pull brake levers.
Shimano offers some flat brake levers for its low end road groupsets like Sora and Claris. The R550 that @Lolo recommends are best option without breaking the bank.
If looking for something fancier (and much more expensive), then it's Paul Comps Love levers .
On any case I will advise installation with good compression-less housing if you don't want to end up wit a terrible spongy feeling on the levers and little braking power.
Dam, appreciate the reply! Really helpful.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
