You may be onto something there--maybe that's why Avid doesn't offer a factory option: They'd have to redesign the pivot point/mechanical advantage. Hmm...****** said:I compared the twenty6 to OEM, and I didn't see much difference either. I'm thinking of getting a local university student to CNC a pair to my spec (longer), but I'm afraid it will be too much mech. leverage and hurt progressiveness/performance. We'll see.
