Sorry man. Not many scumbags would break into a van to steal a bike.

I live in WA so will keep a look out if I see it - not sure about the tackly though :hmmm: - possibly just follow them home....

They can be sourced for around 18 dollars, and are a lovely rip off of the Ergo Lever. I've got a pair on my Bosomworth.

They were £6 on Ribble back when I got mine! Part of a larger order, so shipping was negligible.

Thats cheap, you can buy Campy Ergo Lever Style drop levers from Soma, but sadly a bit more RRP than $18 :(

$18 dollars for something that looks like campy! epic value.

I wonder how much an avanti plus store can get them for?
They would surely be able to get them as they sell the bikes.

Would solve the issue of expensive shipping. :thumbsup:
