Stupid cousins.

One of my bloody cousins dropped my bike and bent my right brake lever(rear brake) and made it really hard to brake so im planning to replace this. Does it matter if the brakes and levers are different?

The brake and the brake lever have to be compatible.

It is very surprising that there was any damage to the brake lever, without there being other major damage. Brake levers are overly strong.
