Are your brake levers perpendicular to the ground? Go OTB a lot?

No, they are down quite a bit, but more in line with the fork. And never go OTB.

lever angles can be any angle between 0 and 90 tbh, it really is personal preference, guys like yoana berilli runs his levers parallel to the ground lol

I just found I was always waaay over the front wheel and got crazy arm pump when they were rotated that far round, all sorted by raising them up a fair bit.

i heard raising them up helps for jumping as well but idk, i just run mine about halfway, neutral is nice, as they say. last time i checked they were 40 but i think i even went to 35 now

New rig built up and ready to ride. Just waiting on a broken finger to heal up so I can properly test it.

To each their own. I run mine quite flat as I find it places me in a better position on the bike and reduces arm pump a little. On my Brompton they’re pointing down though Wink

I run mine like this one. It depends on where your bar is in comparison to the saddle. If you run your saddle at the same height as the bar, flat levers feel good. If your bar is below the saddle, a bit more angle feels right.
