    Flat bar brake levers for Avid Shorty Ultimates?

    Need some help:
    I'm putting a flat bar on my 'cross bike and was wondering what brake levers would be compatible with my Avid Shorty Ultimates?

    If possible, I would like to stick with an Avid lever as I will also be using the Sram DoubleTap 10 Flat Bar road shifters. But, maybe there are other manufacturers such as TRP or Paul's that make a lever that is compatible?

    Thanks!

    Any lever that is cantilever/bmx u-brake/road caliper (aka "short pull) compatible. It's been a long while since Avid made 'em, Avid SD 2.0's or original avid ultimate were the last ones IIRC.

    Looks like tektro, shimano & cane creek "flat top/bar" are easily available.
