The SCR-5C levers are a compact version of the SCR-5. Sharing the same design properties, these compact levers have a shorter reach for riders with smaller hands. • Materials - Cold-forged 6061 aluminum alloy levers, high impact resin bracket and exclusive compound rubber lever hood. • Weight - 263g per pair. • Finish/Colours - High polished anodized silver and laser etched logos.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Big and solid feeling for comfortable riding. Hood is 35mm at it's widest point. Nice action too. However, if these are short levers (135mm by the way) I'd hate to see the long ones!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Same as Tektro
Bought these as an upgrade to the Tektro levers that came with my Specialized Langster. Imagine my disappointment when I found these were identical other than the patterned rubber hood and etched levers. The Tektro R200A Levers are £10 cheaper !! Buy them instead and save some money. They are good levers but I marked them down because of the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome ergonomics
I previously owned a pair of Dia Compe brake levers like these, but never liked the shape of the hood or lever on those. So, I thought I'd try these ones from Cane Creek, and they've turned out to be awesome.
I only use one of these levers - I have an Ultegra 6600 right-hand STI brifter, and then I have one of these on the left-hand side coupled with a down-tube shifter for the front derailleur (old-school Lance Armstrong style to minimize weight, plus it gives me continuous control over the FD). The shape of the brake lever of the Cane Creek feels excellent when used from the hoods or from the drops - the shape is ideal for my fingers, and is even nicer than the Ultegra brifter. The hood of the Cane Creek is wide and large - very slightly larger than the Ultegra 6600 brifter, and I'm pretty happy with the comfort when grabbing the hoods - way more so than I was with the Dia Compe's, which were too small and hard.
This is the "compact" model, meaning that there is a shorter reach between the lever and the drops. The reach is ideal for me (I have medium-sized hands), although I wouldn't call it short, it is more like medium.
