Left or right?
I like to have the lever on the right, it’s my dominant hand so it makes sense. Got it on the left on my 1×10 bike just for neatness though and it still works. I don’t drop or raise while braking though, not a very good idea regardless of where the lever is…
And yeah, for reasons of total rockshox weirdness, their lever is much better upside down. If I were a cynic, I might think that their decisions to mount the lever in a really vulnerable location, and to make it a bit delicate, and to charge an absolute fortune for replacement parts, are not totally separate 😉
You might want to do a little googling to see how well it’ll fit with your brakes and shifters though, dropper post lever location can be a hot topic.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
From a bike shop perspective after speccing them on our customers bikes I recommend a left hand lever. You’ll do the majority of your gear shifting with the right hand so i’d always choose a left hand upper lever.
Whether or not you fit it above or below the bars will depend on your preference and with regard to what gear system you run, a 1×10 system will enable you to run it under the bar, a 2×10 or 3×10 and you’ll prob need to run it above the bar unless you have thumbs like an ape.Posted 4 years ago
