Default Re: Monarch springer fork and drum brake

There are different handlebar brake levers for different leverage(pounds)pull also,,,and too,if the lever on the brake drum pivot is 1 inch from center and delivers 100 lbs power(work),would 1/4 inch additional length on that arm add 25 pounds of work force to the brake pivot,25 % more?(I do not know the real pounds force it delivers this is just a leverage advantage simulation thought)
Some old guy from way back when (probibly before my time)said something like "give me a lever long enough and I can move the world"
