Weaknesses:    Fit

Bottom Line:

Besides this gap being overall annoying while riding in the hoods I've notice that my index finger gets pinched in this gap while carrying my bike over barriers (which is the last thing I want to think about). Hold off on these levers until SRAM designs specific single speed levers.
