I ride my bike with limited right sided support (no support if I don't wear the prosthesis). In essence I need adaptation for one handed bicycle control, for one handed bicycle braking and for one handed gear switching / control (in my instance, left handed). Because of that, I need good brake control.

This is the first in a series of posts related to bikes and biking.

The brake lever (AVID) was chosen because the lever can be tuned to work over a short or long lever distance. For me, the brake lever was adjusted to travel a long way until the brakes are fully closed. That allows me to very finely dose braking power.

I purchased a brake cable force distributor that allows me to pull one lever / cable and to have both front and back brake pull at once. The manufacturer was SBM INNOVATION.

My bicycle modifications were installed by the tech wiz bike shop CYCLE SHARK in Zuerich. They took time and knowhow and could have taken this even further.
