    Bling factor- High
    Stopping power- Probably cheesy


    I used to have a set of Paul "Love" Levers, and I could only get three fingers from my smaller than average hands on those puppies. And the sides were pointy and dug into your joints.

    But people were always like "SWEET LEVARS d00d!" so that was kinda fun for a while.

    I had the Love levers on my MTB and they felt fine.

    Hmm, guess I'm a weirdo. I thought they were HORRIBLE ergonomically.

    I use to have them and they were uncomfortable as hell. They also don't provide very good leverage since the lever is small. But the worst part about them is you have to remove all of your tape them get them on and off. There is no hinge on the clamp. I've read on how people pry open the clamp and get it on, but for that price I wasn't going to try to pry anything open.

    I've used an e-lever before and enjoyed it. one finger brake action. solid construction which is typical of Paul components. the braking feel is pretty solid as well -- the lack of a spring mechanism feels great, surprisingly.

    the only flaw is a lack of a hinge. I had mine on a pair of Nitto Noodles and with a little grease, it slid on quite easily.

    If you're planning on riding long distances with descents (where you'll prefer something more ergonomic and something that you can use more than one finger with), I would not recommend, however.
