 You run your brakes so far from your bars!

 What, the lever bodies from the grips? Or the blades from the bars?

 The brake mount from the grips, probably run mine a little more than half as far as yours!

 Just the way I run them. One finger braking.

 Fair enough dude, everyone has their preferences Big Grin I usually one finger brake, unless I really need to give them a squeeze, then it's two Smile

 Also, what brakes are you running? Might be shorter from end of lever blade to clamp?

 On my Stinky, Hope M4's, on hardtail, Tektro Aurigas. Tektro levers are longer than my Hope ones.

 Hmm not sure. Try moving your brakes in for a run, see how you like it?
To be fair, I'm quite a large guy, longer reach an all.

 They feel good how they are, usually just one finger brake with them but the occasional two if I need to stop quick. My dad runs his levers with massive reach compared to mine, big hands.
