Air, if you still have your breaking-in-traffic-concerns, have you thought about a second brake lever for the top? (They make these secondary ones. If you are interested but don't know what I'm talking about post and I'll look em up. I'm running otut ot pick yup the kids. -hambone)

If you have a link handy I'd be interested! I'm still trying to get it so my hands don't kill me after a mile - off to a hardware store for some PVC pipe (to create that ergonomic bend) and some other home improvement project stuff
