    Newbie question: Inline brake levers

    Hello,

    I guess I should know this, but when you add a set of inline brake levers to your bike, can you install them so both sets of brake levers work? Just trying to figure out how this is done.

    Thanks!

    yes. the way top-mounts work is that they push the cable housing. this increases the distance the cable has to travel and actuates the brake. they are designed to work without interfering with the main levers.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.
