Mr Knock-off rides again!

Impressed with my recent purchase of levers from Hong Kong I ordered another set! I'd originally ordered a shorty brake, regular clutch and after fitting and riding I decided a shorty/shorty combo would be me.

While on the site I also added a couple sets of grips to the order - heck @ $11.99 (US) I figured I'd get two sets as I could not make my mind up on the colour! Leftovers will be offered on my countries equivalent of Ebay.

So - the grips arrived today - they are so identical to the ones sold under the Driven brand name I believe that Driven probably get theirs from this supplier.

Heck the levers are darn well identical to Pazzos so possibly the same supplier too.

Why not - it is indeed a global world for suppliers now days.

Yep - it will be interesting to see how they fare in the long term.

Rizomas are interesting in that they come as a full kit with the cams and bits.

I am interested. I bought knock off levers and tbh, their freakin awesome, at a quarter of the price. Even if they last me 3 years, and ive had them so far for 6 months now, i would come out winning.

There is so far no sign of wear on these levers. i might just invest in these grips for that price eh.
