Didn't the dial allow you to move the cable stop way out to the end of the adjustment so you could run V's (or terrible feelign Canti's with way to little leverage)
Maybe they "kinda" worked and pople bought the correct levers instead. I remember there being a large amoutn of adjustment on the levers (roommate in college had them) but the better question is was it enough pull to match the requirements of the V's
coulda sold you mine, but it is in the dumpster of despair.
those levers are hot, people just don't understand the power of purple. Had an 06 purple Y-11 (which the above fork came off of). Damn that was fine looking bike...
