usually with no fingers on the levers unless I need them. then one or two depending on how bad I think I will crash.
I was just watching Kranked 7 and several of the riders were hitting huge jumps, nailing big gaps, hitting sick downhills etc, and all with 1 finger on the bars like it was everyday routine. Got me thinkin that maybe either I should buy stronger brakes so I can easily lock them up with one finger OR just develop a stronger index fingerspecializedbeta18 said:One finger each side for riding but when im jumping i usually try to have none on the brakes so i can keep my full hand on the grip for more control.
That way one finger on the lever should definitely be enough. It is much easier to hold onto the bar with three fingers, than two. The only time I have no fingers on the lever is really when I am struggling to climb something.bcbud said:move your brake in on the bar ... therefore you can grab the hook at the end of the lever for better leverage
