Default Re: Dual Brake Lever - Info. 2 share

You're right that in an emergency stop situation there's no time to think of such things, but it rapidly becomes reflexive should you constantly expose yourself to challenging driving conditions, in actual application it provides better braking abilities should the driver be able to utilize it. This is why most motorcycles and bicycles have independent brakes to begin with.

In "normal" driving conditions and with average drivers driving "normally" - it makes little to no difference, which is why I've got a dual brake lever on my cruiser (cosmetic concession - too many levers make it look odd), but not my mountain bike, which is also my winter driver
