I realize the 14-15 Sparks have already made the show circuit with no changes to the lean adjuster, but I'd sure like something with a little less fiddle factor. Set it once, turn once to tour, turn once to ride. I 'm begging, is it too much to ask?
Bring back the cube!!!!! Maybe add a fifth side for those wanting finer increments? After using the cube the current system is just too fiddly for impatient curmudgeons like me. It's my only gripe about my Burners

Has anyone heard of any forthcoming changes or options from Spark on the lean adjuster, or come up with an alternate option?
This and the heel lock-down were the two things I felt I had to compromise on in going with new AfterBurners last year. With the add-on heal lock-down out now I'm still hoping to regain some touring/ climbing stride length. As others mentioned the existing adjust has a frustrating fiddle factor. I've had the lever ice up and the adjuster block freeze in place in variable conditions and have been unable to or given up on changing it at switch-overs. The Karakoram solution seems ideal.
I have an original pair of Ignition 1's sitting around so might try the old highback with the cube system on the new binders in the interim.
