    I haven't used them, but I'm thinking of picking up a pair. The pair I felt at the Otter blew dangerboy's and straitlines out of the water, absolutely amazing. I one finger grip, but they worked pretty well for either if you like using two fingers.

    Hopefully somebody else chimes in with more experience, cause i'm in the same boat

    They're ok. They feel better than Dangerboy's, Straitline's OWN these brake levers though... so much better.

    I know thread resurrect, but I have a pair of Hayes Mags that need levers. $25 for the straitline, $20 for the twenty6. Which is better and why?

    Too bad they're aluminum...LOVE to have them in white painted CF but I'm not throwing my Elixir Carbon levers away for them

    btw- anyone know what their claim "improves handling" is all about?

    easier braking with more comfortable hand position. It's mostly ad-speak but I will attest that my saint levers very near the bar gave me infinitely more confidence than my hopes that would quickly pump out or my maguras that i had to stretch to reach. I'm hoping adding these to my mags will give me that position back for less cost.

    Thanks for all the kind words, we're glad to know our products are well received!

    Just as an FYI, we no longer manufacture Hayes Mag levers, but we have some for sale (as well as Formula Oro and Stroker Ryde) at a discounted price in our web store.

    shop.twenty6products.com

    We are still manufacturing Avid Code and Avid Elixir levers.

    And you're right, Sandwich, "improves handling" is a bit of ad-speak, but is really just a simple way of saying that if you have a more comfortable and confident brake grip, performance should improve.

    Do the Avid levers fit the 2011 Code R's?

    Yes, the "Elixir" levers will fit Code R's. It's a bit confusing.

    I would try Fanatik or Bike Bling would be most likely to have them in stock. Make sure you call them and ask what colors they have in stock, because we are low on colors at the moment over here (I don't want you to place an order with them only to have them send us an order for a color we don't have - sticking you in an endless loop). For "Elixir" we have white, yellow, and urban camo, but they might have a few more on hand.

    I'm not sure whether mine are 2011 or 2010 but here's a pic of the Elixir levers on my Code R's. Definitely enjoyin' 'em.

    Bikevt - no, the Ryde and Trail are not interchangeable.

    So, Monkei, seriously - when are you going to move to Montana and come machine for us? We're gonna need another machinist soon. It's cold up here in the winter but the mountains are epic and so is the biking. Send us a resume, I mean it.

    I hear about the difficulty in finding good machinists all the time, sad that this shortage has to limit growth potential of US precision manufacturing.

    I'm stuck where I'm at for several more years while getting my BS, and I don't know if I could ever leave the year round riding around here, but I really do appreciate the offer! I hope you find the right fit for your company!
