Any grease that's no corrosive to Aluminum, Plastic, Carbon or Steel is acceptable for use on our bikes.. Typically you want to choose something with a Poly blend, as oil based lubes can be corrosive and have adverse interactions with component materials..

Rival has no contact point adjustment, just lever reach.

I guess that's what he's asking. If people miss that feature from rival groupset. I'm assuming to decide to go for rival or force.

Sorry I've didn't think mentioning it again was necessary and kinda self explanatory from context.
But yeah, I'm on the fence between these two.
On my current bike I can push the lever to the bars and I'd like to avoid that with my new bike (semi hydro + Shimano)

No, once its crimped on when screwed into the shifter or caliper it crimps the the okive and barb amd makes it extremely difficult to remove the olive.. if somehow you are able to separate them, you could use the barb again as its hard stainless steel and doesn't deform... but its kinda pointless as these pieces are sold in sets and you will just be left with extra barbs at the end of the day
