Wunderlich Vario Levers

I've seen a few mentions of the Vario levers here, but there aren't a lot of pictures, so I thought I'd post some.

They are ridiculously pricey, but they are a huge improvement, especially for those of us who are big two-finger riders. And the quality is top-notch.

They look awesome, did they mount straight up no issues?

Yeah, super easy. Wunderlich has an instructional video on their page. 10 minutes each side max.

Cool, I've been looking at these but was tentative since other brands I tried(one set sent back) weren't up to par

You mean because of the quality or difficulty of installation?

I got them and love them. But found I had to drill and lock the adjustable lever position once I got it where I liked it.
My glove kept hooking on the adjustors and spinning them out of position.

I worry about that too. I almost always cover my front brake with my index finger, and it sits right on the adjuster. So far it hasn't happened, but your experience concerns me. I've only had them on for two days.

I won't say product because I always like giving leeway but I recently purchased a set that we're top dollar and they sat misaligned in the perches and the clutch cable was impossible to insert without taking the lever out of the perch. Also they sat offset so impossible to adjust so they were both same length from the bar(I am a licensed aircraft mechanic so very mechanically inclined and thorough when reading directions)

Wow, strange. No such issues with these. Though I intentionally have my brake lever one notch closer to the bars than the clutch lever.
