    New question here. anyone cut their hayes levers?

    not that i can even ride right now, but i was wondering if anyone has cut their levers so that you can get the lever closer to the bars and still use one finger. i like to one finger brake and i dont like how far i have to keep the lever reach out so my middle finger doesnt hit. thanks in advance.

    how is your lever set up on the bar? is your lever installed on the side of your shifter that allows it to be furthest away from the grip??

    hmmmmm..........move levers further..........i'm going to be a failure of an erngineer

    i'm in my lab right now so i cant answer for sure. i think there is a bend in the bars or something. whats the usual width for bars? i have no idea what's on there now. something off a hardrock i think. possibly cut too now that i think about it. i'll check tonight.
