Since I am not sure where these should have gone, I am curious to know where others have put theirs. I recently (before winter) took off the suicide brake levers and installed some single lever versions with hoods since riding in the old hoods hurt. Well upon seeing everyone with their fancy-shamcy newer rides (I say that with nothing but love ) I see the brake hoods positioned farther "up" or turn up towards the sky. Mine are currently "level" wit the top of the handle bars.
I did take the bike out for some rides after I changed the brakes but didn't put a lot of miles on it. I also "mirrored" the position of the old hoods. But curious to know why you, yes you, have them positioned the way you do? Is it solely a comfort thing? Actually how they should be? Am I doing it wrong?
Here is how they sit:
