Default Re: Dual Brake Lever - Info. 2 share

I keep my dual brake levers on my MB's for the reasons barely said. For a throttle I use a seperate brake lever positioned under the right lever. I have ridden bicycles without motors for many years and as barely said it is reflexive in an emergency to use a lot more front brake than rear and will stop you much faster. As for looks I really don't care if it looks cluttered. If it works well it is good. If you persist in using rear brakes more than fronts it will bite you someday when you really need to stop as fast as possible especially considering the speeds we run on these things. Another thread on this subject.
