Figured I would chime in since I just got my levers from thetwowheels.com
The price was ridiculously cheap when you look at the parts involved...There were more tool marks than I would expect from a super high end lever but I like a bit of personality. They are not light which is a good thing in my books if I am buying a 'cheap' product. I also do not expect any bubbles in the metal due to the following...
-They look great and better than I expected.
-Anodizing appears to be relatively thick and durable.
-The actual mechanisms feel excellent.
-They did not fit the housing. And by did not fit, I mean wayyyy off. I spent at least an hour with a file before it would fit into the stock housing. It was not just a matter of the anodizing but I had to file off a bunch of metal as well. This is where my comment on metal quality comes from above, nothing but straight metal that I filed off, no bubbles.
That being said, I think these levers are a great deal. They look and function awesome once you do some modifications to make them fit. I realize they may not be the same process as the high end levers but am more than confident they will not fail and extremely happy with them.
My 2 cents...
