    Bent Juicy 7 Lever Help

    I bent my Juicy 7 (2005) lever . I'm gonna bend it back. But the aluminum is now stressed and weakened. So I imagine its a matter of time before it breaks. Is replacing the lever an option? Or a better question, what are my options?

    Levers are replaceable. The question is, do you want to replace it with the same, or do you want to upgrade? For example, the relatively new Straitline replacement levers are considered to be a good upgrade to make nice brakes even better. But the stock levers are probably more a more cost effective option.

    Levers can be replaced. They're relatively inexpensive. Dangerboys and Straitlines cost a bit more, but they are definitely nice.

    Next time, leave the clamp a little loose so that the lever can shift under hard impact. This will help prevent another incident.
