Had a bit of crash on the Forest of Ae trail at the weekend resulting in a broken brake lever on my one week old bike! It snapped off and the remaining bit is now wedged in the bracket.

The brakes are Promax DSK-905 hydraulic brakes.

Does anyone know where i can get a replacement one from? I’ve looked all over the web and can't find ones that are specifically the same and this brake type (does it matter?)


Is it easy to replace myself or should i go to a shop? It doesn’t seem to an easy point to get it off.

Thanks for your help!

    first point of call is the shop that supplied the bike, they will be able to get spares.

    Dont think you will find any on the web.

    should be fairly easy but i would hope the LBS would sort it if they source the lever.
