So let me ask you all this:
The grip area seems to be a concern for many of you. Would you still consider purchasing these without it?
There is a significant cost associated with doing that so I may be able to offer these without that grip area for a little bit less money.
For what it's worth;
Personally I do not like the "grippy" area. So I would want them without that and absolutely would not buy any lever that had any "grippy" area regardless if it was knurling or some stick on substance
But I also would be far more prone to buy your existing "basic" levers rather than these as I am more about function and simplicity than flash and vulnerability.
I do not need adjustability- I slam them all the way out and never move them again (big hands
I do not need folding- to me it simply creates a weak point at that hinge to break........and I have seen dozens break right there. I would rather have the machined "thin" break away area a couple inches in from the end for it to snap off at if it gets whacked, and you still have "shorties" to get you on your way
Colors, of course people like colors on the levers, but I am not opposed to just the colored hardware with black levers. While subtle is not my strong suit, on the bike subtle looks awesome
Long or short, Long of course (only small handed people want something short, because they are used to that small grip....damn pin dicks) You can two finger brake with any lever!
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
