Cane Creek Crosstop Brake Levers

These bar-top levers are the sensible choice for Cyclo-cross bikes. They are designed to work in-line with traditional drop bar shifter/levers to provide additional braking control position on the top of handlebars. Crosstops are compatible with caliper or cantilever brakes. They are available in two different sizes to fit, 26mm and 31.8mm handlebars.

Features:

  • Machined aluminium lever and bracket (hinged for assembly ease).
  • Neat 2.5mm hex bolt takes up tolerances in pivot.
  • Materials: Cold-forged aluminium lever, die cast bracket.
  • Weight: 96g per pair.
  • Finish/Colour: Anodized black with laser etched logos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Хорошее качество Хорошее качество, работает как надо. Слегка дребезжит на неровностях. 22 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Warning: the 26mm version actually has a 24mm clamp ! (the 3-star rating only because i had to rate it to be able to post this comment) Can't really say anything about the quality, since i didn't use it, i have to return it because the 26mm is not a 26mm but a 24mm... Weird: also the installation manual says: "Installation on 26mm handlebar...must be mounted on the 24mm portion of the handlebar..." So why not advertise this as a 24mm option ? (like other brands do) While this might work for some 26mm handlebars, not so with mine: the "24mm portion" of my handlebar starts almost in the bend of the handlebar, not the place where you want these brake levers to be mounted. However, i'd "blame" this to Cane Creek, not CRC who did a very good job shipping everything (my order included several items) very fast... Hope the return policy / department works as fast as well, i have yet to return the levers... 15 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adds versatility I just switched from riding a flat bar hybrid bike to a drop bar cyclocross bike for commuting and occasional off-tarmac trips so I added these for a bit of extra peace of mind. They fit the bill perfectly, they mean you can reach your brakes from a really upright position, useful particularly in urban situations like approaching junctions. I think they'll be useful when you need to have your weight further back too, such as descending a steep track where you don't really want to be head-down in the drops. The product is easy to fit and good quality. There is a little rubber grommet included to seal where the cable outer fits, which is a nice touch. The adjusters give you convenient extra place to adjust your brakes too. The lever is a nice shape and can be operated with one finger. Full fitting instructions are included in the pack. It says in the pack they won't work with V-brakes but they really mean only full-size mountain bike v-brakes. I am using them with STI levers pulling mini V-brakes and they work perfectly as mini-Vs are the same cable pull as cantilevers or calipers. Note these are auxiliary levers that work with drop-bar levers by moving the outer cable, you can't run them on their own. 10 December 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good Very good lever for fixed or crclocross 11 November 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product Have dad these on my road bike for over a year with daily use. Excellent for commuting when you need quick braking and reactions, so much easier to use then drop levers. Only point to note is that it was a squeeze to fit them on as my bars are pretty crowded with lights and computers. 08 September 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant Brought these to give additional braking for my road bike. Easy to fit. Highly recommended. Spent more time trying to threadle a new brake cable through the guide hole in the handle. Should be installed as standard on new bikes. 21 August 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for commuting Bought these for commuting road bike- relatively easy to fit if your cables are not frayed. Perfect for complete control when you need your head up for manoeuvring through traffic/ low speed cycling/ going up hill. They do not interfere with operation of main brake levers. Highly recommended. 12 December 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by gr8 value! am using them on my fixed wheel commute bike and they work very smoothly, super value and highly recommeded 06 August 2009

i have a Norco Cyclocross bike with shimano sora st 3500 levers and I'd like to fit cross bar levers as well. Will these work with mechanical disc brakes, it is just a cable after all?
Thanks

Answers

Answer: 
These levers are designed to work with Road brakes, using their specific pull ratio (which differs to the MTB pull ratio). You will therefore need the Road version of Mechanical disc brake in order to use these levers (such as the BB5 Road linked below).

Answer: 
Yes, the CX Expert brakes are Cyclocross/ Road specific, and run a drop bar cable pull. These Cane Creek Crosstop levers should work with them ok, but for best performance you would be best suggested to opt for Hayes levers.

Answer: 
Generally these levers are mounted just where the bar tape ends (before the taper clamp area for the stem), This area on these bars for clamping these levers is 25.4mm; making the 26.0mm levers the ideal selection.

Answers

Answer: 
The Vero handlebar below runs a 31.8mm clamp diameter, so the 31.8mm version of these Crosstop levers will be suitable. They should work fine in conjunction with the SCR-5 levers.
