Another tip, get a double brake lever and connect both front and back brakes to it. That way you engage both brakes with the same lever, leaving more real estate on the other end of the handlebar.

good idea except WD-40 is often misused as a lubricant when it s not.
It's main purposes is to remove moisturize and unfortunately will break down and remove what little grease a better use would be CLP lubricant on the cables WD-40 breaks down what little film may be on the cables from the factory eventually causing the cables to rust
