    For those with dual front & rear brakes: did you use a dual lever or dual cable?

    oh wow. never even considered a cable splitter! even have two kicking around now i think about it!

    good idea!

    erm...i used the dual lever that i happened to have lying around, but i guess i would have bought a splitter before buying a lever... if it had even entered my mind, that is.

    my only concern with the splitter would be balancing/proportioning the front and back? not that its a major concern, without any fiddling i seem to get the correct proportions anyways... they both lock up on gravel at the same time, can do endoes by leaning forward, blah blah yarda yarda...
