    XO gripshift and Hope M4s?

    Has anyone on this board made this combo work? The M4s levers are short and I am pretty sure that there wont be enough room to grab the levers with the XO gripshift.

    Getting longer levers is an option but I like the stock levers.

    Thanks.

    no problems

    I don't really understand what you are concerned about. I run my M4 and mini levers about 1 or 2 cm inboard from the the gripshift, and the lever still covers about half the grip. i use 2 fingers for braking. if you used only 1 (your pointer finger), you'd probably move it further in than that. What, do you want to brake with all 4 fingers or something?

    I ran this setup on my Blur for a while and had no problems.

    Recently I changed levers to some Dangerboys and like it them considerably more than the stock Hope levers (which I also liked). The Dangerboys are shaped a little better, are gripped, and are longer.
