Brake lever guard

Which are you using? Any real differences between them?

Andrew (A.Carey on here) had a Woodcraft one. He said to get the Graves one.

The way the Woodcraft ones mount, you need extra long bars, and it takes a lot of screwing around with the bar position and moving the controls back and forth so you're not smashing things at full lock.

Haha that makes sense, looks like the Graves screws in while the Woodcraft actually mounts on the bar... that's annoying.

I have Vortex clipons if that matters at all. Have to confirm same ID/thread as the Graves bars...

I thought Graves was ****ing overpriced at $150... though I guess at least the Dion has some tech behind it (and by tech I mean a hinge... woo...)

That LP guard looks like the way to go.

I'm pretty sure the Graves fits the Vortex bars. I'm 95% sure I went and looked it up. I'm running Vortex bars too. You can just pop the rounded plastic bit off the end and replace it with the lever guard.

FYI, the Dion thing is available way cheaper on Amazon.

Cool I was pretty sure it was semi-standardized.

Well now I have to figure out the difference between the "Privateer" version and the "Factory Racer" version

(since the latter is still $245)

Edit: nm, apparently it's just number of colors and whether you get some cf to save a whopping 56 grams... definitely not worth $80).

Re: Brake lever guard

Love my woodcraft guard. Works just fine with regular length bars.
