Is there anyone who could ship me a dual cable bike lever, and maybe the $1-2 cables to it with USPS First-Class Mail® International Parcel? It would help a lot!

Thank you in advance,
George

Are you sure you can't just visit a bicycle store near where you are? Bicycle parts are pretty much internationally standardized, and you won't have to pay for shipping.

Also, I'm not entirely certain that the cables specified in the shopping list are the right ones for the bicycle brake lever, so you're much better off visiting a bicycle store, telling them what you need (dual bicycle brake lever with two brake cables) and letting them give you the right parts.

Well, I've not looked around phisically, but I found nothing in the webshops, these dual cable brake levers are really rare stuffs, as it's only used in rather special cases. Anyway, decision made: I ordered one from the US! :(

Hi everyone, DO NOT send me PM's or emails about buying a kit. In short, writing me about buying kits makes kits come more slowly. I will announce publicly when they are ready thank you for your understanding!

Feel free to follow my work and progress here
