mine broke off......... i dont wanna talk about it, but im glad it happened. even though i dont use that BIKE ANYMOREbig nasty- thats what happend to my stock lever, i still have it and i liked it but everyone told me it looked like shit, so i took it off. still in my tool box as an emergency!
dee- did you cut yours to? mine actually broke off and the rest of my levers fine, so i rounded it off on the grinder and it feels good.
james- i did the same, it never really worked.
