    New question here. Avid Speed Dial SL Brake Levers

    Various sites on the Internet are displaying different weights for Avid Speed Dial SL Brake Levers. Some are saying 140 grams and others are saying 186 grams and another says 180 grams and the PDF I downloaded from the SRAM site says 150 grams.

    Why the differences? Could those listed with the heavier weight be 2006 models? If the 2007 model is 150 grams then that is the model I want.

    I also noticed a difference in the SL logo being displayed. Some have a logo with the words Speed Dial accompanied by a black circle with the letters SL in grey. Others have a black background with the letters SL in red. Does this distinguish which is a 2006 or 2007 model?

    Thanks,

    I had already loooked on the SRAM site for contact details but they haven't had the courtesy to include email addresses or a contact form.

    pricepoint says 2007 over the picture of the one w/ black lettering:

    and with a random weight of 186, my bet is they actually weighed them rather than listing a claimed weight. It may be that the '06 were lighter but too weak so they beefed em up just a little for '07. You might want to call pricepoint or jensonusa.com (they sell the red-lettered) and ask them if they know or can find out for you.
