i like the looks of shorties. someday i'll have a set myself.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

I have the Pazzo's I really wished I'd gone with the Shorty's... but I love mine... though the adjustment doesn't do much for me... the only level I can use is 6 (longest reach) as my fingers get in the way otherwise... hence why I want the shorties...

Heard great things about both.
Pazzo's can usually be had for a bit less than CRG's from what I've seen.

Pazzos are the same quality as the crgs but less money. Get a set of pazzo shorties. You'll be very pleased.

Yeah. I find a little lithium soap-based grease makes the bearings on the pazzos work just fine....

hey thanks for the replies everyone. i did about as much research on both as possible and i've heard nothing but great things. and seeing as how they're similarly priced, i think i'll be going with the CRG's based on looks alone.

I have pazzos, but I would look into ASV levers if I had it to do again. 5 year warranty that they will replace them if they break, but they are suppose to be unbreakable.

They look nice but I'd still go Pazzo. They've got more color combo's.

I like the CRG's better but they dont make them in black/black combo so I am going with the Pazzo shorties.

I hate how the adjuster dial thingy is red on the black levers... That would look hot on your bike though.

When you need more leverage on your brakes, you'll wish you didn't have them.

Your first and second fingers aren't strong enough? Even after all that stroking of your own vagina?
