    Replace brake lever on LX dual control hydro?

    Picked up a used bike on ebay, this baby has been ridden hard! It the LX dual control shifters-the flapper/paddle type jobs-with hydro LX brakes. The right brake lever is bent. It's functional but there is cracking in the metal lever, I'm betting it won't last too long. Is this a replaceable part (the lever) or is it a more "replace the whole unit" type problem? Thanks

    I don't know for sure, but here is a link from the Shimano website with the exploded view and parts list for the LX dual controls. They do not show the lever as a seperate item, looks like the lever is part of the whole shifting mechanism. http://bike.shimano.com/media/cyclin...9830539729.pdf

    I found that link too and noted the same dang thing. I think I'm gonna pawn them off onto my buddy and let'em ride'em 'till they break-or something. Too bad it wasn't a separate brake and shift lever....

    Did I mention dang?

    Thanks for double checking for me
