    hey guys, it's me again.

    i got my avid disc, xtr cables and my xtr lever in the mail today.... but the lever was the wrong one. because i'm a brit i have my front brake lever on the right. so can anyone tell me where i can find an xtr lever or a descent avid lever for the right-hand side. baring in mind that i'm in England and i cant get anything off a canadian site.

    thanks alot

    dan.

    Meh... just run it on the right.

    I've got a left side HS33 lever on the right side. Upside down, but works just damn fine. The lever shape is the same, just looks a little odd.

    yup just flip it upseide down, no use wasting a good lever. I know i'm not really answering your question, i have no idea where to buy just one lever. Maybe post int the sale section with a WTB:right xtr lever.

    do ya reckon it's worth buying a pair of xtr levers? instead of searching all my lfe for just one. or is it worth gettin a pair of sd7's for £36?

    opinions please?

    sd7 levers = urinated poop

    (compared to xtr)

    search to the ends of the known earth for the right lever. or use the left upslde down.

    :hsugh:


    On numerous bikes I ran upsidedown hs-33's and upsidedown XTR's. There is no difference....that is unless you are a 4' tall guy who can feel that your bb bearings are not totally smooth :rofl: (inside joke).

    Is that directed at Elan by any chance.

    Yes I too have tried levers upside down and it does not affect the fealing or performance in a negative way.

    Just flipper and go ride.
