GRC Moto Levers

STOKED.

Just got of the horn with Sulley, and placed an order for a set of the GRC Moto-X DHF levers. Should be a nice upgrade for my Hayes!

What a stellar guy. He took time to explain all the different lever models to me, and went into detail about angles and the input that drives the construction of each model. Then he told me all about the Rotec line-up for 2004.

He is obviously a guy doing this out of some serious passion for bikes and gear. Awesome service!!

I'll report back and try to get some pics up when I install them.

My buddy just got the Shortys...they feel dope! I like the fact that the new hayes mags use an allen bolt intead of a pin, so installing new levers is easy.

I've been thinking about getting some of those. Since I only brake with my index finger, should I get the shorties or the motos?

You should get shorty's.

I want the longer ones....The little bit extra length translates into a little more leverage for a little more braking power.

Almost got a set of those for myself too. I can't quite bring myself to buying them yet. Waiting for a lever brake first.

man i envy you corey. they are damn sexy levers.

if i was to get a set i would go with the two fingered. i find shorty levers feel kinda stupid when i get on a bike. it's like having a gun with half a trigger. what the fucks the point hahaha

Well, I just mounted up my new GRC Moto-X levers...

What can I say besides.."DAMN"!! They feel like they came out of the womb with me. Very ergonomic feel to them and solid as hell. I can't wait to go for a ride and grab my first handful of brake!

Definately a worthy purchase for any serious gear whore.

Thanks to Sulley for the Shirt and decals, and thanks to Felix for being the middle man and mailing them to me.
