Avid 3.5 brake lever
#1
It seems you cant buy these? Anyone got any suggestions as a friend has bent his lever slightly and needs it replacing, he seems to think his only option is to replace the entire front brake?

Suggestions please? Smile

Only aftermarket levers that you can buy are expensive ! If you take the whole lever assy off you will probally have to rebleed, so factor the cost of the lever assambely and bleed ... will probally be cheaper to buy a whole new Avid 3 brake

Yer, saw something about straightlines but they are £50 odd for a pair of levers alone! Could try Avid importer but maybe better just to buy a new one or look on ebay for one cheap with a faulty caliper or something and mix and match good bits
