I'm finally making my SS into a fixie! I'm planning on running a front brake but don't want to use the original road levers. I like the idea of having a cross or MTB type lever on the flats. Are cross levers the only kind compatible with drop bars or can MTB levers work as well? Are MTB levers the right diameter or short pull? I'd rather use an old MTB lever than buy a pair of cross levers and only use one.
Also, if I can only use cross levers, what kind of cables do they require (road/MTB)?
Thanks for any help!
