- Puzzle of the Reverb & Shimano brake
I like them fitted inbound, above if you have a shifter with the button pointing just downward enough so the adjuster clears the brake body. Double win because it makes bleeding the remote super easy.
underneath it works either side as long as you leave enough room for the button to clear the brake clamp.Posted 3 years agozero coolMember
LH remote under the right side tight to the grip, then a at brake and X9 shifter on the inside.Posted 3 years ago
TBH I have found it amazing that the Reverb remote(most awkward design ever) fits better with My new xT brakes than the Avid Elixers I had before. It’s like the Avid, SRAM & Rockshox designed their products completely I dependants to each othermintimperialSubscriber
Yeah, I’ve done what SOAP’s done, the angle is flat enough that the button is about as well protected as it would be mounted upside down and it’s easy to reach everything. Works better than the other variation I have which is like alandavidpetrie79’s but with Formula brakes and a LH shifter, and places the button way to far inboard to reach easily.
I reckon there’s definitely a market for a better reverb lever…Posted 3 years ago
