So that basically means 1 brake lever operates both brakes? Do they think people are really that lazy?

actually quite a good idea for people with limited mobility in one/both hands.

i had to adapt a bike for a kid with only one hand. in fact i have done three for him as he grew up.

older people with arthritis could definitely make use of it.

i used to quite easily lock my v braked shod wheels :?

yeah i guess what jamabikes says it could be good for, didnt think of that

they should put some more quality effort into the 'leather' design though

hmm i wonder how you would brake independently though, i guess no endos or skids on this?
or maybe you can double skid

Strangely enough in a recent article one of the guys from Hope components was running a splitter in his Hydraulic setup achieving the same effect,for what reason I'm not sure as they have no plans to market it ! probably a "just because I can" idea :lol:
