I have some Tektro RL520 and have had them for a WHILE. The hoods split at some point, I forgot exactly when. I want to replace my bartape and I want to either:
- Buy new hood replacements
- Find an alternative to using traditional hoods
I used electrical tape to compensate for the initial tear in the hood and wrapped the tear with it until it wasn't noticeable and tearing into my hand.
I can either buy the hoods here for $14.99 or buy new brake levers at the amazon link above for $25.
Or take off the hoods? and ride like that? Or wrap the brake levers in bar tape?
