    dual position brakes??

    Looked at a Specialized TriCross yesterday and really liked it except for the price. It seemed a little high for the component selection. Anyway, one of the things I really liked was the dual position brake levers. What other bikes offer that feature?

    I'm pretty sure they're "interrupter" levers. They're used in cyclocross, and can be added to any bicycle with aero brake levers. They're separate from the main brake lever.

    Who sells these? I'm thinking of adding them to my road bike for emergency braking.

    ^^^Google. Cane Creek,Specialized,bunch of others.

    Added them to my old Redline Conquest. Hardly ever used them. With drops I spend most of my time on the hoods;about the only time I use the tops is when trolling the local MUP's,and if I'm coming up on other users I just switch back to the hoods.

    Several manufacturers listed here: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...?category=1600 . Many, many online places sell these.
