4.0 out of 5 stars Levers Work Well
By Gene O'Connor on April 25, 2012
The levers themselves have been working well for me. I tried them as both clamp-on levers and mounted on the lever bosses and they work well in both configurations. I've only ridden with these levers a total of 65 miles so I can't say how long they'll last, but they look and feel like they'll last a long time.

Pros:
- Inexpensive
- Work well

Cons:
- No instructions (Solution: See the photos I've posted.)
- Cable guide gets in the way if you mount them on the downtube. (Solution: Cut/file them off.)
- No plastic lever boss covers included for mounting them on the braze-on bosses. (Solution: Make a plastic washer to go between the metal washer with a square hole and your frame to protect your paint.)

I've included notes with the images I've posted and they should help you figure out how to install these levers on the braze-on bosses better than anything I could write here.

When you mount these levers on the braze-on bosses, the metal washer with the square hole in it goes right up against the frame and it will rub your paint off eventually. I made a washer out of a plastic milk bottle to put between the metal washer and the frame to protect the paint. If you must have plastic lever boss covers to protect your paint, you could try ordering the SunRace SLR90 9spd 28.6mm Braze-on Shifter Set and using the lever boss covers from those shifters. They should work, but I don't know for sure since I haven't tried it.

BOTTOM LINE: These levers were cheap and now that I've installed them, they work fine so I'd buy them again.
