I lost one of my Ultegra caps, the plastic thingy at the top of the brake lever. It musta just popped off.. Is this a common problem with these things?
LBS quoted $15 to replace one I think. Talk about a rip..
I could ride without it, but I'm worried about getting my glove caught in some of the edges sticking out..

Unfortunately they come off easily and it's one of the things that was changed with the new versions. chainreactionbicycles.com describes a fix using a dab of silicone. I've tried it and it works well. It also cures the annoying rattle that you sometimes hear.
