    WTB: old Deore LX left brake lever

    I'm not sure yet if I'll stick with the canti brakes or fit some new v brakes but either way I'm going 1x and would like to get a brake lever to replace the brake/shift combo lever. Does anyone happen to have this as a single lever laying around?

    Thanks!

    All good. I was thinking at worst I could easily cut the shifter part off, clean the edge up and make it pretty unnoticeable. I'll probably just convert to v brakes tho, maybe Paul Motolites

    Thank you but I actually just sold a set of xc pro canti levers/brakes I didn't need. I went a different route and used XT M739 levers and calipers instead

    You know, Shimano sells the levers by themselves, they are listed as a touring part. I think the XT BL T780 levers are lil spendy, Avid FR7 levers are a bit less. The Shimano levers are listed as a 3 finger lever while the Avids are 2.

    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    I actually have the T780 levers on one of my other Stumpjumpers and they're my favorite by far. Also recently bought a pair of R780 levers that are supposedly able to run v or mechanical disc brakes and possibly cantis too but aren't quite as nice feeling as the t780.

    The reason I wanted the old lx lever was because I made a 1x7 grocery getter out of my 92 stumpjumper and wanted to do it as cheap and original as possible. I had the 3x7 LX brake/shift combo levers and wanted to keep the right and have a plain left brake lever without the shifter I wasn't planning on using. I just ended up using DX thumbies for the rear shifter, XT m739 levers and v brakes and m737 rear mech so it's all good now.

    Those are super nice! Do you have the calipers too?
