Default Levers? Any suggestions?

Want something of quality, foldable and maybe adjustable, but it being adjustable length wize prob creates a weak point. What u goes think?

I buy cheap ones, so when I break a pair, I already have a replacement on hand... But if you want to get something more expensive, check out these.

I personally like the ASV levers. They do not fold but they are unbreakable. The C5 levers have a 5 year warranty and you can buy an additional 2 years for $15 if I recall. The levers are also very adjustable. I think they also sell perches that are designed to also provide protection in a crash.

I was about to mention the ASV levers. They look to be the most adjustable of the available levers. If i wasnt so cheap i would have a set on my bike as we speak. Unfortunately i settled on cheap ebay knockoffs.

On their website there's a guide on how to bend them back into their right shape so I'm guessing they will bend. If they were completely rigid I'm not sure if that'd be the best thing for your perch. I forgot to mention the ASV levers do fold forward near the perch. I cannot say if the CRG levers fold I can't remember, I researched both products when I was deciding on levers.

I ended up going with ASV and I'm very happy with them. I remember researching them a fair amount before making a decision and either one is a safe bet in terms of quality and customer service. I think TJ at Riders Discount carries the CRG products so that's a BIG +1 too. I bought both sets of my ASV levers from Motomummy, they were closer than the ASV office in Cal. and I believe the largest ASV supplier, and I wasn't too impressed with their service.

If you can, it may not be an option, maybe try and find someone with the ASV or CRG's and get a feel for them.

A word of caution about "unbreakable". Sometimes having a smaller item break is better than it surviving and breaking the more expensive part it is attached to.
