Alright guys, who's found one that's identical to the brake lever?
Not sure what brands you are talking about but:Mad Hornets are good kit. Nothing too technical about an aluminum lever. Most ”expensive” brands are imported from the far east too. Price doesn't always equal quality. You will be pleased.
i hear you, and again not knocking anyone who has purchased them - just throwing my 2 cents.Don't worry Beck, I know exactly what you mean when it comes to Made in China products. I typically avoid 99.999% of them and prefer to by local or North American products. The Mad Hornets are my 0.001% Made in China purchase thus far for any of my bikes over the years. There are a few people on here that said the Mad Hornets worked good, which is the only reason I decided to give them a try.
that experience would do it for me as well - bummer particularly because you paid so muchASV contends that the levers were fine. They blamed the perch. Bought a new perch, at my expense. Still binding. Sent back lever, at my expense.
The lever measured to their spec.supposedly, so they were finished with the transaction. That soured me on their product and service.
Alvin was less than helpful.
We used the plastic levers too, and I remember snapping one off pulling in the clutch in a hare scrambles race on a freezing snowy day. It was so cold that it was brittle.I'm happy with my Mad Hornets and also with my Arai helmet. Some items I go low dollar on and some not.
Doug, back in the day remember those black plastic (nylon?) hand levers? That's what I used on my play dirt bikes, took a lot more beating than the stockers lol.
My post rate has gone way down, you'll pass me this winter.
We can all describe this in one word "Walmart".....US companies use their position as US companies to push Chinese products to consumers, at inflated prices, because we think they are doing us a favour.....
