The Shimano BL-R550 Brake Lever Set is an excellent replacement set brake levers for flat handlebars. The levers are designed to work with cantilever, road caliper, and road disc brakes, and integrated barrel- and reach-adjusters make fine-tuning brakes an easy task.
Alloy construction. 22.2 mm clamp diameter. Not intended for use with linear-pull (V-brakes).

BL-R550 Brake Levers - Best bang for your bucks
If you need these, then you probably already know there are not many options out there these days for short pull flat bar levers. These are a solid option and well made for the price. They work ideal for mtb, commuter, and townie builds using any type of short pull brake (road calipers, road discs, cantilevers, or mini v-brakes). They even include brake cables and housing. You'd be hard pressed to find a better quality short pull lever for a better price
