    avid speed dial ti lever replacements?

    is it possible to replace the levers for avid speed dial ti levers? i notice they have a pin that is mushroomed on both ends where it holds the brake cable end. if i broke the levers would need a brand new brake set? do they even make replacement levers for the speed dials? i've looked online but haven't found any

    thanks

    You could try checking the SRAM service area of the website for the AVID spare parts catalog, but IIRC they've only been doing spare levers for the new ultimates for a long while now.
    Probably cheaper to grab a set of SD 7's for $20-30 online or your LBS.

    You won't need replacement Avid levers because you won't break them. They are designed to bend in a crash, and if that happens, you will be able to just bend them back. I've done it with my Avid SL levers. They're great.

    The "bend zone" is designed to bend... I had one where the blade cracked when I bent it back, just the nature of aluminum. Depends on how much its deformed in the crash. They aren't designed to be replaced with that mushroomed pin.
