The brake levers arrived today.

The spec list in the catalogue doesn't say if they are 2 finger or 4 finger. I think they may have been 4 finger when teamed with the Gripshift.

Anyway, 4 finger are AWESOME.

Check them out!
:shock: :D :lol: :shock:


Those levers would look perfect...with some thumbies :wink:


I just sold my XT thumbies. :-D

Now before you start slagging them off, please find me some Mk1 Gripshifts with the griptape covers and I will gladly change these!!


I like the way those looks. 8) Where'd you snag those?

Item number 230658748622 on eBay. The seller has yellow and black ones too. If you want some and they won't ship outside UK let me know and I can get some and post them out to you.

I've always found short chainstays to be great uphill, great in the technical areas and, if the rest of the geometry is done right, great downhill too, easy to chuck around and great in the air too. :-D

Those Sachs gripshifts are the same as the ones I got on my bargain Marin, Rob.

But I need grips to match... Any ideas?
I also need some grips to match some 7sp gripshifts on my Hahannah before I can sell it....

You can have the grips I on the right of the picture that came with them if you want. I won't be using them. Ring me. :-)
