Howdy folks.

Are these the levers that came with white hoods and the little plate that allows either traditional or aero cable routing? If so, they require a mighty tug in aero mode to get decent deceleration from the hoods. I had a hard time finding the little plate and hood plugs in the early 90s, but that was pre-internet.

Happy New Year,
