Just fancied something different. Bought them in the 40% off sale so if I don't like them, then not a lot lost.

Brakes will get a full strip down next week. Proper clean, new pads, new fluid and lines.

Plus they tend to keep their colour.

I don't like short levers but ASV are usually top quality.

It's really not that hard you muppet...copy link from address bar on Youtube, hit POST REPLY, hit "video", paste link in between the BBCode.

But after watching the clip I'd understand if it was just because you thought it wasn't worth the effort... :?

Misses had an attempted delivery yesterday but as we both were out we missed it. Problem is it has a charge on it of £1.50. Got in touch with the seller a d they said
1. It doesn't have a charge it's free
2. Even if it had a charge it would of only been 0.97p MAX

Seller is pissed off, he said he has sold thousands of products and never had a problem and now Royal Mail are trying to pull a fast one. At first I was really angry and thought he was taking the piss but after looking at his reviews he only has 2 negative reviews within the last 12 months...personally I think that's pretty good so take his word for it.

As we turned up to Royal Mail noticed there was a car accident in the entrance of the car park...great start to Christmas for them then!

So got the oackage. Turns out it wasn't the seller turns out it was a package from Aimee a nan!! Unsure why they had a charge though it was in an envelope with a first class stamp. Rang up the nan and she was disgusted by it as it's only small (something made out of wool) and with a post it note inside. Be aware this Christmas Royal Mail are on it!!

Very nice Rossgo, early Xmas pressy that is actually something you would want, or did you have to treat yourself mate.?
I think that's the 1st time I've seen folding ASVs, when you say superb value????????? :)

Esrly Christmas pressie to myself @StMarks! Done the brake lines so it was the levers. I have a couple other bits of like to get for the bike but not right now as running seriously short of cash now!
They aren't folding ASV's they are the shorty ones which I personally prefer. As for value, one they are great quality and two they had 15% off each lever at sportsbikeshop.co.uk and I was looking at eBay and other sites but all wanted over 200quid as a pair but there's were a lot less so couldn't resist!!

Not wanting to argue the point mate, but it does say "unbreakable pivot design" on the packaging & looks like that may be an extra coupling point on the stem.?
Pleased you're pleased anyway, always nice to get something for Xmas that you would actually want. :D
