i got an xt shifter/lever combo on my mtb. i took a spill today and i bent
the lever. now the right lever is bent upward. i could see some metal
stress marks on the lever itself.
the question is -- should i bend the lever back to the same position?
i think i probably could but it probably makes the metal more fatique.
i think shifting and braking from this lever are still fine. but it
just feels weird having a shorter reach to the right lever than to the
left lever (like i said before, the lever is bent upward). if i don't
bend the lever back, i probably have to rotate the pod downward more to
compensate the bend...
thanks a bunch!
