Re: I wanna grab em...levers and grips

I've only ridden stock levers... Idk how everyone feels about shorties but its obviously a popular item. In my opinion I feel like I would want that extra length on a normal size. opinions?

You can get 3 fingers on these if you're a "whole hand" kinda person. Personally I prefer using 2 fingers to do most things

They're ok. It's all about what you're used to.

I prefer the longer one/brembo lever on the brake side but the short one on the left now that I had to run the lever that came on the RCS. It's really all about preference man and if you are OK with the folding levers moving a bit into your grip as you work them.

Again everyone seems to trash d3s but its a personal preference and I personally like them. He also said flash and no one can say they don't look good since you can change grip/collar colors

Levers.... Whichever is cheapest. I'd still have stockers if I hadn't have gotten a set of shorties for free.


Renthals & stock levers here.

Might help that you hang onto your grips when you go down.
