As an inventor (see signature, biography, and visit my site www.smartbuttonshoes.com) I am working on a project that will require me to have an inverted bike brake:
More specifically: I am basically building a puppet (dummy) (of a fish) whose mouth (and eyes) must be controlled by a bike brake lever (and its mechanisam) becuase the puppets will be used on stage and the preformers will be visible. They need to be able to control the basic functions (eyes and mouth) with the lever and then be able to exaggerate and act normally with their other free hand. The brake need to be oppsite a normal brake as in the brack should be closed and then when the lever is squeezed the mouth will open. When you let go of the lever the brake should then revert back to its closed stage.
If you know how this can be done or if you have any ideas, please post asnd/or email me. If you could draw a picture and email it, that would be even better!
