  • Bicycle brake systems are used to slow down or stop a bicycle. There have been various types of brakes used throughout history, and several are still in use today. The three main types are: rim brakes, disc brakes, and drum brakes.

  • The process of adapting or becoming used to a new situation

  • alteration: the act of making something different (as e.g. the size of a garment)

  • the act of adjusting something to match a standard

  • A small alteration or movement made to achieve a desired fit, appearance, or result

  • making or becoming suitable; adjusting to circumstances

Weinmann brake lever covers white 1970s

Weinmann brake lever covers   white   1970s

Very hard to find these days. Photographed under indoor lighting so the color looks more ivory color here, but they are actually still quite White. The cable exit opening is around 8 mm. in diameter which was large enough to fit the Weinmann levers with integrated cable adjustment stacks.

White was the color used for the levers on Motobecane's Grand Record bikes of the mid 1970s. This new-old stock pair was a rare (and expensive) find on eBay a few years ago. They surface so infrequently in this color that I simply had to purchase them - or regret missing the opportunity in later years. I'm saving these in a small sealed plastic bag - just in case I ever decide to accurately restore my Motobecane "Grand Record".

Much as I like Tektro's RX4.1 levers on my Lager, their 510A calipers are rubbish, frankly!

The finish is poor and they don't offer decent adjustment, so are spongy as a result.

I've upgraded to a vastly superior set of Shimano BRR450 calipers, which have a lovely satin finish, a higher quality feel and proper toe adjustment.

They have excellent bite and power and are a brilliant upgrade for ?24.
