up top mountain -- Sourthern Ca.
just wondering -- added stress to brake ???

i know that i was wondering how they conect up

hook up like all brakes -- but -- two cables to one brake

they (front and back) brakes are applied at the same time - from same lever

I am just -- at this time -- not sure if these are safe for the common rider ?

that front brake can put one down fast !!!

plus -- as I study the double lever just a little more

this maybe adding some stress to the brake lever -- pulling two brakes ?

ride that thing

Do you mean something like this? I have used this for a long time and I love it. You can actually adjust the amount of bias by preloading the front or rear more depending on if you like more front or more rear brake. It also allows independence so if one cable fails you are not without brakes completely.

To answer the original question- yes, you have to remove the cable from the sheath, thread it through the hole in the lever, then feed it back through the sheath. Works best on new cables.
