    Cane Creek Drop V Levers ?

    Sorry not a 29er specific question but since it is to build a drop bar 29er and the subject is brought up frequently here.....
    Where to find them in Australia or in France for a reasonable price ?
    I live in Australia and Cane Creek does not even list a distributor here.
    You can find some parts in some online shops but nothing that specific.
    They are at Speedgoat and the price is good. They were even in promotion last week for US$ 40 but the shipment was almost the same cost. It is ridiculous.
    Same at Chainreaction UK, same price in UK pounds !!!!
    I'll be in France end of June, beginning of July and was thinking I could try to find them there.
    Any ideas ?
    Eric

    Just noted your post in the IGH (I have an alfine too but it is another project). Are you using the Cane Creek or the Tektro ?
    If Tektro, do you know where someone have them in stock ? Speedgoat does not list them and Chainreaction UK seems out of stock.

    They're in the UK but I'm sure they'll ship them out to you.

    Thanks. I have bought the Tektro off a UK site in back order and Rob is offering to sell his Cane Creek locally. I guess I will have to re-sell the Tektro later.

    Correct, on both accounts.
