What levers would you buy??

hey all, LTB some levers, deciding b/w CRG, Pazzo, Austin, HP. Right off the bat though, HP seem over priced. Besides brand, more importantly, how important is it to spring $$ for the folding? I don't think it will really save them from damage, but who knows. Also, I know most racers frown/laugh at shorties, but I sort of like em, any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.

I know a lot of racers that prefer shorties. If you ride like a lot of us you prefer the natural two finger grip the shorty offers. Also, if you get the shorty version there is no need for the folding levers since that attribute will not be needed. You would have to try getting a feel on some bikes that are outfitted with them to see which version you like best. As far as brand, you really can't go wrong. Just don't go cheap. I am crazy about my CRGs but I hear others are just as good.

When in doubt.... Gas it!

I think I'll go for the Rizoma Levers. Have you looked at it ?
I got the Rizoma licence plate support, mirrors, fluid tank and engine guard installed on my bike, I can say that Rizoma is all about design, damn they look good.

i read a lot of good things on the lightech. I think i'm goin with pazzo though, they look slick. They're all pretty similar from what i can tell. not a fan of stock silver on a black bike though, so gotta change. thx all for the input.

I have CRG levers on mine. I usually get ASV levers, but none were available at the time. I just prefer the ASV levers as a wheel is used for adjustment, allowing for infinite adjustability. I'm still happy with the GRGs, though.

CRGs for me too. Believe they were the originators of the roller clicker adjuster and others soon copied. Was going to get Pazzo's but at the time they were screwing around with people on when they were going to be released. Kept dragging it on - so I canceled my order and went with the CRGs. Great levers for sure. You won't be disappointed.
