    You might want to do a search for brake, but 'here's a thread '
    (http://tinyurl.com/mmhf4)about the brake I :D installed on a Coker
    :cool: that can be used as a drag brake. Complete with pictures.:eek:

    Ok, I am now officially in my normal state of -advanced- confusion.
    Don't try to confuse me, it won't make any difference. If you try not
    to confuse me, that will confuse me.

    Sarah Miller and Paul Selwood have these on their cokers.

    To implement it, attach one of these levers instead of the brake lever
    and fit a cable operated brake, I believe they have side-pull caliper
    brakes, which worked okay on the stock coker rim.

    If you want a drag brake lever in addition to a non-drag brake, you
    have to do more complicated things with the cable. Sheldonbrown.com has
    something with a nutty double brake lever setup that might help here.
