What brand of brakes do you ride?  Actually was going to write an editorial about this at Crankworx last year as, anecdotally, SRAM athletes run their levers consistently flatter than other brands of brakes.  Confirmation bias warning: that mirrors my experience with SRAM brakes where my comfortable position is flatter than with Magura, Shimano, TRP, or Formula. It was years ago, but Shaums March broke down lever positioning (rider to rider / bike to bike) the best I’ve heard. Start with levers in-line with your arms in attack position and then adjust upward-downward for preference. With the exception of the full flat riders I’d guess you’d find most riders are in this window.  Bar height and reach both play a roll here and riders on relatively longer Reach for their dimensions will end up running their levers flatter with this model.
