  Shimano Tiagra Road Brake Levers - 15091



product code: BL1

This lever has 95 percent of the looks and quality of the aero Dura Ace brake levers but costs about 60 percent as much. As aero levers come, they don't get any easier than these; and the grip size and shape is eerily perfect for every hand on earth. The only blatantly cheap thing is the plastic whatchamacallit between the rubber hood and the lever. It doesn't do any harm, and it doesn't look bad, but it is plastic nonetheless. Forget about it if you want nice aero brake levers that you'll love the instant you put your hands on them, get these.

Includes cables and black housing.

Clamp diameter is 23.8mm, like all other Road bike type brake levers, for use on Moustache or drop type style bars. Will Not work on Mt. bike or Albatross or Dove style bars since those have a 22.2mm brake clamp diameter. This is not to be confused with stem clamp diameter which is a totally different thing.

Sold per pair.

Great shape June 15, 2015
Reviewer: Paul from CA, United States  
The Shimano Tiagra brake levers have a shape and reach that works perfectly with the Nitto Noodle handlebar. Was that bar designed around these levers? It sure seems so. Set them up like Rivendell recommends and you can't go wrong. The gray plastic piece just inside the front of the lever may rattle from riding vibration. It's easily pulled out if desired without affecting the function or safety of the levers but doesn't look as pretty. Hardly an issue since there's not much to see there anyway when the levers are set up correctly. I also like the way these look too. Sleek while unpretentious. Not bulky.

Brake lever rattle April 24, 2012
Reviewer: William Russell from Atlanta, GA United States  
This is a good aero brake lever that works well and installs easily. The only complaint is an annoying rattle when going over bumpy (even slightly bumpy) pavement.  The rattle is caused by a gray molded plastic insert just inside the top of the lever handle (and which appears useless).  Solution: remove insert with needle nose pliers and the rattle is gone.
