Anyone ride w/ the right lever as front brake?
« on: November 10, 2010, 05:32:53 AM »
I ride a motorcycle. I figured I'd switch the cables around. For some reason it seems so unnatural on a bike. There's definitely more control with my left hand. Maybe I answered my on question?

My only thought is, since I pivot to the left, it would be much easier with the brake on the inside than out.

yes i ride with my hands switch.....
like wen i was a kid and started riding, i got screwed over by some unbeknown innocence Taiwanese factory worker. who took the initiative to switch the levers.

and it has completely f*cked with legs and hands, so in effect my front foot is rightside
and left hand is strong side.... its a bitch riding gooofy wen all ur mats are rolling natural
makes it difficult to learn on the opposite side

but ya, u get around it eventually

I ride brakes backwards too.   Long ago I ran only a coaster brake and when I first saw rock walks I wanted to try it.   So I put the front brake on my strong hand.    I had no idea it was the "wrong" way.    ;D
