Shimano introduced its first professional level component group in 1973, labelling it Dura-Ace. This was also the first year Campagnolo produced its Super Record groupset. Shimano continually improved its Dura-Ace components. But Shimano really silenced all critics when Andy Hampsten won the 1988 Giro d'Italia on a Dura-Ace equipped bike.

Looking from behind the lever, the cable exits from the left side, meaning it is intended to be mounted on the right side of the bars.

Shimano Deore XT 700 brake levers. Used $40.00

Part# BL-85

  • These levers were produced 1983 - 1986. They are sometimes call 4-finger levers because of their generous gripping surface.
  • Though the anodization is a bit worn, they work like new and will give many years of service. Shimano truly overbuilt these excellent levers. If you are building, restoring or repairing a 1980s mountain bike, these are your levers.

These levers use the large-diameter barrel brake cables.

Shimano Deore XT levers

These levers have seen a lot of fun, and they have a lot more excitement left in them.

Deore LX BL-M570 ATB brake levers. New, 65.00

These levers have a power adjuster which allows the rider to change the relationship between the brake input and output. If the power adjuster is moved, the braking force can be dramatically increased, so that a high level of braking power can be achieved with only a small amount of of lever movement.

Deore brake levers

The power adjusters can be seen with settings from low (L) to high (H).
