Dangerboy finally makes lever blades for Gustavs!!! Anyone running them yet? The stock Gustav levers have a really long reach (the lever is far away from the bar) even when reach adjuster setscrew is adjusted for minimal reach. So much so, that I had to bend the stock levers to make them closer to the bar. So the question is, do the Dangerboy levers have less reach than the stock levers? It would be a shame to get the Dangerboy levers and they have to the same excessive reach as the stock levers. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks for replying but you didn't really answer my question... Is the reach about the same as the stock levers or are they closer to the bar? Thanks.

I know I didn't answer. I said I would get back to you, but to answer you question quickly. The reach can be adjusted just like the stock levers. You can make them closer or further away. they are shorter in length, so doesn't feel like pulling a super long lever. It actually feels just like any other lever, but with a better feel and control to it.

It's been a busy week for me, so as I mentioned I will post some pics and try to answer any other question you or any body else has.

...I didn't pay retail. :thumbsup:

And frankly, once I felt the D-Boy levers, I didn't really care WTF I did with the carbons. I just knew they were coming off. :D

Skate- Thanks for posting pics. In your photos, do you have the lever reach setscrew adjusted so the levers are as close to the bar as possible?
No, they can actually go back or in further, but any further for me and I start hitting my fingers.
