Default Re: Adding a Front Brake...advice, suggestions, please

I think your simplest solution is to get the bmx pyramid caliper brake from bikeworldusa... good folks to deal with, by the way. This has a nice wide and long reach and is what I just installed on both my 63 Schwinn Americans. Work great and was the cheapest solution for me. I also had just the rear coaster brake. As for your levers... all you would have is the clutch lever on the left and the brake lever on the right. I don't see where there's a problem with too many levers. That's how mine is set up and there isn't a lot of room on the riser type handlebars I use. Works very well for me. Good luck to you...
