by any chance, did you notice if squeezing becomes heavier on city rides?

i had these levers (and orange too) for my previous bikes (r1 using standard length and duke using shorty), both were harder to squeeze and taken a toll on my hand. when it is traffic, i can feel it to the point that i wanted to go by the sidewalk and park.

I have not used the bike since installing these levers. I did perfer the original long levers as opposed to the short broken one. I did find discomfort in both hands after riding last year, but bilateral carpel tunnel repair surgery fixed that. No issues now.

I bought those levers in shorty like 3yrs ago.
I love them over the stockers. Quite adjustable, more comfortable and they look cool.
I notice no pain squeezing them.
