You may know more about my setup peccadilloes than I do! To be honest, I set up the levers to be even by sight and by feel, but then, as everyone knows, over the course of the first few rides, you make small tweaks until it feels 'right'. Now, I won't say that a mm here or there would totally throw me off - I'm more about being within a specific range and then I can deal with it. Maybe there is an injury or biological asymmetry - I don't know for sure but it wouldn't shock me. Once upon a time I had a really, really talented and elite road bike fitter do a once over on my setup and it was asymmetrical everywhere, but that was due to a leg length difference that was playing havoc with my hips and I don't have those issues anymore...I've also got some past shoulder injuries that just maybe are at play even though they don't bother me. Anyway, interesting to think about and I'll pay attention to it for future interest's sake.
