Well... Didnt check any Newtons per angle distance stuff, that also depends alot on tuning.Originally Posted by alienator .
Easier to reach and operate? There's nothing to suggest that at all. Braking faster? Again, there's nothing that suggests as much.
I havent seen too many gravity bikes with drop bar shifters. It seems that these brake levers (the horizontal ones) are easier to reach and the operating position is a bit quicker to access and you can also hammer the brakes without using too much force from an non-efficient angle like in the drop bars. Unless you got hands like these: /img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif
