Rated 5 out of 5 by Дешево сердито отлично удобные ручки . Работают на ура . Удобно крепить тросик. Значительно быстрее стал схватывать тормоз по сравнению с нонеймовскими ручками. 08 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but watch the bushing These a good, and cheap, and do the job nicely. But over time the 'vertical bushing' is doomed to failure - if you're riding off-road anyway. It gets loose and there's nothing to hold it in. I don't think it can fall downwards, but it can work its way up and out if you're not paying attention. It can also fall out if you get the bike upside down - during a quick trail service or if you stack it. I put some tape on mine to avoid losing the pin - but have to admit, that was after a lot of hard use. Still, I'd spring the extra few bucks and get the speed dials, they don't seem to have this problem so far. 24 June 2014

Answer: 
Hi, there.
You may use those for all handle bar.
But, you can't install these near stem position.
Usually, near stem position will be thicker.

Normal size for stem will be 1" but actual grips and levers are made based on the 22.5mm diameter. 22.5mm is same for the 31.6mm oversize handlebar.

If you want to use levers for near stem position, please check other inline levers.

Answer: 
I have fit it onto both a set of standard BMX bars (22.2mm) and MTB bars (25.4)mm).
However I predict that you might struggle to fit it onto an oversized MTB bars (31.8mm).

Answer: 
They ARE ambidextrous and work alright on both sides, right or left
without a problem. They are all the same except for ONE thing. The
direction of fixing bolt, as the attached photo.

In that sense, there exist "The right side lever" and "The left", unless
you don't mind when the head of the bolt faces downward on either
side...

Am I correct...?

Answer: 
These are ambidextrous levers; so selecting the 'left of right' option will supply One lever from ourselves.

Answer: 
Elixir 1 is a hydraulic disc brake and the levers are for cable disc brakes or rim brakes.
So, they are not compatible.
