Custom made Avid Elixir7 levers

Hey guys!
Does some of you have custom made Elixir 7 brake levers on your bike?
If so, where did you get it?

Tyler doesn't appear to be making levers any more but there are still some stores that carry Twenty6 levers for the Elixir:

http://www.backcountry.com/twenty6-p...ode-and-elixir

I have not personlly used his levers but a teammate has and likes them. I;ve used other products Tyler has made and the quality is top-notch. He machines them himself in his shop in Belgrade, MT.

I checked at 26 for Elixir7 levers and they don't make those.

Fixed

Scroll down the following page, you'll see that Twenty6 used to make them.
http://www.twenty6products.com/products/

Before you look on the Straitline website and come back with a comment like "I checked at Straitline for Elixir7 levers and they don't make those", I'll tell you that Straitline doesn't appear to be making levers any more but there are still in some shops or on ebay.

That was why I SPECIFICALLY said this and then gave you a link to a retailer that still has some in stock:

Do you read?

BTW, for everyone else who can read and navigate the interwebs, Tyler does still have some leftover stock of levers for Hayes and Formula in his online store:
