Can anyone recommend the perfect brake lever for running with Gripshift? I still haven't found one that has enough lever length yet still has that certain je ne sais quoi...!

Hahaha :lol:

I think JT used to run Graftons? Anything with a long enough lever so you can brake without having your hands on the shifters I'm guessing?

I had Sachs PowerWhatevers with Generation One LX V Levers and they were too short, used to drive me nuts.. Slam the brakes on and I'd drop a gear :roll:

In my mind the only thing which goes with Grip Shift are Magura Raceline or Tomac brakes.

Yup as said above - Avid Ultimates (the canti ones as they are longer and lower profile than the v ones).

If these are SD 2.0s - I have a couple of sets and slid a pair on - not much difference really... the search continues!
