    Longer levers, do they exist?

    Diggin' new grip shifters, but I don't like my hand on the shifters fat grips. Not cool for the descents.

    Hmm, I don't recall this issue with the last grip shifters I had on a previous '00 bike.
    Fatter grips these days?

    Oh, Hayes Trail brakes. Hey, they came on the bike.

    I run grip shifters and they are find for descents. I think most people are ok with them while descending.

    There are a few companies that make aftermarket levers, like Danger Boy, Straitline, etc. Maybe they have a longer version.

    Yep. Same complaint here. Running 2012 Shimano XT brakes - I wish the lever blades were a tad longer like the previous gen XT levers. I don't know of any after market brake levers for new Shimano brakes. If someone does please fill me in.
