My bad, I'm kinda tired. I've been working all day without a brake.

yeah I wasnt very impressed with the stock springfield levels....

Odyssey Slic Kable.
3.49
Springfield brake set
17.99
odyssey monolever
19.99


vs springfield kit.
29.99


so 10 dollars for a better lever, Yeah i'd say its worth it, but cut your grip back that might help any lever will be weaker if its on a bend.

or get a shadow Sano lever, Best lever I've ever had. period.

I've heard the levers that come with the Springfield kit kinda suck. Just get a replacement lever I guess

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Springfeild levers are a budget lever. Nowhere near as good as a decently priced lever.

Get a tech 77, a dirt Harry, a gold finger or a monolever

I'm a punk bmxer, I can't do it well so I do it loud.

8/4/2014 7:53 AM

Monolever. Just yes.

|

8/4/2014 8:57 AM

Tech 77 is 13 bucks. Best bang for your buck. I've been running them for 25+ years.

I think the Springfield lever would be okay but clearly not when put on the bend.

Too tight? Maybe they aren't designed to handle being mounted to a curve...
