Do aero hoods go on from front (lever side) or back (bar side)??

try both ways, or wait for a guide. use lube. your choice. self-heating variety not essential.

Bar side for my RX100 levers(both STI and aero versions). Its a tight fit, but itll get there. However I did tear the original hood when removing.

srsly, i use a bit of detergent, rinsing them when i'm done. lube is a bit weird.

you may find it easier to go from the clamp side depending on the shape of the lever body, and the elasticity of hoods, but i usually find it easier going from the lever side. as i said try both ways. one way will be difficult, the other will be more difficult ;p
