CX Lever Not Worth It
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I really wanted to like this CX dropper lever. I paired it with a PNW Pine external dropper on a gravel bike and took it off after a month of riding. My biggest complaint was difficulty of getting clean cable routing - the position forces the housing to curl around to follow the bar contour which introduces a lot of cable drag. Then the inline barrel adjuster didn't want to hold the housing straight unless it was adjusted all the way in. I don't know what brand the included cable was, but my Park Tool cable cutter really didn't want to cut it cleanly and the cable end position behind the lever made it fussy to cut short enough to be unobtrusive. It was hard to get good tension on the cable before clamping without a third hand, and lastly, there was no grip to the lever blade so by thumb wanted to slip off on rough terrain. Oh, and you have to completely unwrap your bar tape for install.
The good: construction quality is solid and the kit includes cable and housing, so everything you need for install.
