About three years ago I converted a bike for someone with only one functioning hand. I'm a bit foggy about the details because someone else got the kit and I just did the job. I'm convinced it was a bike with V brakes.
Someone else who only has one fully functioning hand has just asked me about doing the same thing, either with V brakes, mechanical discs (same pull ratio) or with hydraulics for a mountain bike which he currently uses with only one brake. I spent over an hour researching it this morning only to come up with next to nothing.....phoned Hope, Madison (Shimano), Bob Elliot, Moore Large and Upgrade. All I found was a brake lever for cantilever brakes or road caliper brakes that'd pull two wires, but nothing else.
If anyone has any pointers they'd be gratefully recieved.
I've got my own brain ticking now.....road mechanical discs (Don't they do them for STI levers which are canti/rd caliper compatible???)with that canti dual lever I found!!!!!
Any other suggestions gratefully recieved...............
