    A few pics of me on my Spot Acme during a recent tweed ride here in Durham NC. My buddy is on his Linus with his handmade leather accessories that I covet because he's crafty like that.

    Thanks man, I think you're right. Not sure why the builder did that but in looking more at the shapes of each lever it does appear they are swapped. I'll switch them around.
