    Tektro have QRs built into the lever

    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    does this relate to the cable removalmor the actual lever?

    Cane Creek ones are nice - hood is broader than Shimano ones so more comfortable - they are however dressed-up Tektro levers so only worth the money if discounted. Cable release is a push-button like Campagnolo, when pushed-over it allows the lever to pivot further into the body
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
