- Moving my brake levers – will I die?
It’s a rider fit and comfort thing.
I 1 finger brake, i could not get a happy medium with shimano gear shift pods and my brake levers as the design of the pods blocked getting the sweet spot and they didn’t have removable shift indicators.
I swapped to a SRAM Attack shifter and bingo perfect placement and comfort.
My finger can single brake, and work the shifter, before i had to move my hand to shift, or have good shifting but 1 finger braking was around the middle of the lever so less effective braking.
Only reason for me was to make it fit my hands and more comfy braking-shifting 🙂Posted 4 years agoslowclimbMember
I’m thinking of getting wider bars so I can use one finger on the brakes. But before I get round to getting them I was thinking of moving my levers so they are clamped on the inside of the gear levers so I can try one finger braking. I know levers mostly come set on the outside of the gears but is there any actual reason for it?Posted 4 years agodiscoduckMember
I’ve gone for Hope matchmaker mounts, been riding these for about 4 years, they de clutter the bars and you can run them a good 3 – 4″ inbound from the end of the grips,
XT thumb shifters seem to be that big nowadays you have to have the way inboard to get your hands on the grips.
Try it, I doubt you will die but you never know ?Posted 4 years agoDickBartonMember
