    Xtr brake lever question.

    I hve just fitted some xtr brake levers but the lever needs to be longer as it touches the xo shifters when pulled hard. Anyone know if shimano make longer levers?

    Not sure about the longer levers, but you just need to loosen the hex screw on the rear shifter, and rotate it downwards to move the cable entry housing out of the way of the brake lever. I had to do the same thing on my bike. 30 second job, tops.
