    Question - have you reinstalled the levers yet? I remember noticing
    behavior something like this on a set of "in-the-box" Ergo levers; all
    was well once a cable was installed providing some tension, and they've
    worked fine for many miles since.

    If you've got this problem with a cable already providing something to
    pull against, you can disregard this advice.
