How have you guys installed the your levers on a rando type bar like this?
I like to set up my levers so I can ride on the hoods, but if I do that with this bar the lever itself is at such an angle the reach to pull the levers i very far. I could probably make it work since i have giant man hands, but I'm wondering what others have done.
I supposed I could run a guido lever, but then I won't be able to brake from the drops and that isnt ideal.
I could also move the regular road lever down into the bend more to get a shorter reach, but then riding on the hoods wouldnt work. That MIGHT be ok since the bend in the rando bar is such I don't need the hoods, but that's yet to be determined.
It could be that in my application the levers make it worse because they're already situated pretty far away from the bar. I'm using weinmann's. I wish I took a pick of what it's looking like but I did not.
My original goal with the rando bars was actually less about the top bend and side flaring, and more about the shallow drop. I like shallow drops because they make riding int the drops much more useful for every day use. This bar achieves that without having to use a super tall stem.
What have you fine folks done?
