It would be nice to free up your clutch hand, but it might be hard to adjust it so that it puts the right pressure on each brake.

I LOVE my double-pull brake lever, and I've never used anything else! I installed it before I ever had my maiden run, and I'm able to stop quickly without locking up the tires and skidding out of control. I use the caliper brakes in conjunction with the coaster brake. If I ever buy a different bike to motorize, I will not buy a multi-geared bike, but one with a single gear and a coaster brake.

chieflets, this is my original review of the pyramid lever: https://motoredbikes.com/threads/dual-pull-brake-lever-works-great.4128/

i'll put my followup here :)

tom, i thought that was gonna be a problem too, at first it was difficult getting them synched right. and it was hard to make a quick stop. but now, the cables have stretched to equalize, the bike stops great and i just can't believe these things aren't on all bikes. it absolutely rocks 8)

Dual brake lever

This is what I bought but haven't tried it yet.
Do a search for:
Pyramid Pro Alloy Mountain Bike Brake Dual Cable Brake Lever

Got mine off of Amazon for 10 bucks or so, haven't got to try it yet.
