    shifter indicator covers

    Anyone know of a place i can buy them? Just finished the build {wooooo!!} and when I put the lock out on from the sid it seemed pretty far over and i can barely reach it to make it fully lock out.any suggestions.
    Thanks!

    Are you talking about the stickers that goes over the hole??

    Most people use lizards skins carbon fibre patches for that

    fake carbon stickers look cool and do an excellent job of keeping the shifters clean

    Are there two questions in here? Well, if you're looking for another way to mount the lock-out, provided you have the older style, not the Pop-Loc, I did it differently. I didn't like the idea of moving my hand to lock/unlock the fork, and this way your hand moves much less, and all you need is your thumb. I got the idea from the Trek team bikes.
