Awesome! I think you will love em.I threw down for these levers, and the Annitori QS Pro today ...
Definitely man, nothing wrong with that!I've been looking at these, but I'm waiting for the race version. Just in case I end up on the track, y'know?
Upgrading your levers are non essential. There just has been a flood of posts on here asking about what levers to get. Thought I would give a review of these to help people decide.I haven't been riding long, but the oem levers are fine in my opinions.
I don't think there has ever been a debate about levers, lol. The Chinese levers are never as good of quality as something like CRG. People get them b/c they are functional and don't break the bank, as most people don't want to spend $200 on levers when the $40 ones work fine. It's literally just a matter of how much you can or want to spend. People usually don't argue that Chiense levers are better than something like Jesse's or CRG's, just that the Chinese levers get the job done fine w/o breaking the bank.
That being said, I do think Jesse's levers are the current best option, as you get super high quality without the absurd price of CRG. If I hadn't already bought $40 China levers before he released these I'd have 100% shelled out the extra $60 and gotten his. Supporting someone dedicated to developing quality parts for our bike is awesome enough, but you get a piece that is high quality and functional too. I still might throw in for these levers, but I do love the blue/silver color match on my current levers.
End of the day, glad you are happy with them, and glad Jesse is able to make such a quality piece.
I just mean that you can definitely ride the bike with oem levers and not have any major problems. While I do agree with you, replacing the levers were top on my list as soon as I bought the bike. They are cheap, ugly, and hurt my hands. These new levers are fantastic.The oem levers feel cheap. Also people have different sized hands and fingers so I wouldn't call adjustable levers non essential. My woman complained to me that the levers feel far so this will be the next mod. Just waiting on the race version.
I might be wrong..but I believe that the folding levers are designed to save your levers if you drop the bike. They will probably get a few scratches but they shouldn't snap off like the stock ones might.The levers are really great for shifting and their overall feel is really nice. Definitely made a difference in my riding experience. I personally don't need the folding gimmick, but it just adds to the lever that already looks great.
