Talk about bullshit products! LP replacement levers suck my ass!!!
On my way out for a rip to school I get to the 1st stopsign at the bottom of my street, and it's on an incline street, with me facing down. I get to pretty much a complete stop just using the front brake and the brake lever brakes off in my f-ing hand :
At this point I'm jsut looking at it in my hand while not being able to comprehend what just happened... then the bike starts to roll forward, so I jam on the back brake and wouldn't you know it, the bike leans to the right : seeing as how I couldn't put my foot down without letting the bike roll i set it down as easy as I could... right onto my frameslider, and just missing the pipe.
Still seeing as how I could not understand what the f*** just happened I picked the bike up... OH YA, no front brake, so guess what, it started to roll again, so i stick my foot onto the back brake to stop it and this time it leans to the left : BAM!!! the other slider takes a hit.
Anyhoo... by this point I was almost laughing histerically and I wish other people were around to see it. It was seriously funny shit since dropping my bike is not a big deal since I've crashed so many times before, so this is nothing a dremel can't fix :P
Moral of the story: don't buy el-cheapo products that need to be strong. OEM levers from now on!
