adjustable clutch lever

a while back i posted a thread from my 2013 cvo where i had replaced the stock clutch lever with an oberon adjustable. thought it was great.

fast forward to my wreck. messed up the clutch lever so didn't bother removing it from the bike before salvage. we pick up 2 new bikes and i order one clutch lever for the wife. figure i'll get mine later.

now, at the time that i ordered both of these clutch levers, the company was offering free shipping if you went with a black lever and a black 'button' adjustment cam. no problem, i like black.

so i go to order one for me, and the company has done away with the free shipping option. while i thought the item was pricey before ($135), it was within the realm of, 'okay, i'll take it'. but now, with shipping included, it's over $150. okay, that's just crazy stupid even if it works good.

so i look, and look, and keep looking in the hopes that i can find a different supplier and get it for a better price. nope, no go. almost had a 'almost new' used one but just missed it. found a couple of alternatives, but one in particular, the roland sands actually makes the lever further away from the grip. not what i am looking for. just on a whim, i go to the oberon home page in the uk and do some searching. as luck would have it, with the cost of the lever, vat, international shipping and the exchange rate, the total came to $110. that's $40 off of what the 'other' company charges. so i contact them to make sure that i am getting the correct lever and after some email back and forth, i have them send me a PayPal invoice. 3 days later it is delivered. fit and finish, is as expected, top notch.

now, a couple of points. the company here in the states only offers the 'aero' version (slot machined out), while oberon uk also offers a 'plain' version which more closely matches the stock brake lever. that's the one i picked. and also, if you want chrome, you are gonna have to order from the stateside company. oberon uk doesn't do chrome.
in short, if you are looking for one of these levers. i recommend ordering it from the company directly in the uk. i saved $40, and still had it in the same timeframe as if i ordered it from california. and $40 is $40.....

here's a couple pics showing the difference in plain vs aero.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
