Shimano BL-R550 Flat Bar Brake Lever Set


Product Overview

These are clean, simple and elegant flat-bar brake levers with a short cable pull.  That means they'll work with short-pull brakes such as cantilever, sidepull, centerpull or short pull (road) mechanical discs.  They will NOT work with long-pull brakes such as linear-pull/v-brakes or long pull (MTB) mechanical discs.  These are an excellent choice for converting your drop bar bike to flat bar controls. 

Brake cables and housing are included, though we highly recommend using compressionless brake housing for disc brake systems.
