"Laywers donít know shit about brake hands. Thatís why so many climbing gyms are forced to use GriGris. GriGris are perceived to be safer by non-climbers."
Man, CYA is in every activity. And it isn't the lawyers, its the a-holes that f-up and take people to court. But a prime example to compare the break hand on the gri-gri would be the lawyer tabs on the fork of road bikes. I have never seen or head of a front wheel pop off. All those things do is complicate a wheel change when the race is playing out up the road without you. So, we file them down without a single incident. If anything, they can make things worse when a wheel being tightened catches on those. Next thing you know, its too loose when it slides up in the dropout. But, fork manufactures put them on there to escape liability because they are perceived as safer. Same difference.
