Sounds like a handful!

Any one know any thing about thumb brake's road racer's use??

What's it do/how's it work?

I read years ago about it,they lay it over so far in right hander's they can't get there foot on the brake,so some were using a handle bar mounted brake.I think Dohane did cause his rt. foot was screwed up.

SpieglerUSA.Com sells them...a beautifyl piece made for Road Racers but could be fun Offroad too...

If its so good, then who uses them in their professional off-road or MX careers?

I thought about thumb brakes when I first got into dirt riding since I wanted to put my right foot down when I had to use the brakes but then I learned that I had to brake before the foot went down and when the foot was going down, I didn't want to be on the back brake. The 650R has plenty of engine braking when you are leaning it over and jamming it through a turn.

Thanks for the info.Was thinking it be a way to stop me from being a club footed brake drager and better control in some tecnical trails
