- Which finger(s) do you use?
I use my index finger on my 180mm brakes but my main bike I’m running 160 I use index and middle or in am emergency stop situation etc.
I’m too addicted to using my thumb for shifting and change gear during or before braking.
I prefer having my levers far away -closer to the bar could allow just one finger.

I used to use my index & middle fingers for braking, then a mate suggested only using the index fingers for more control over the steering. Recently I noticed a pic on here of someone using their middle finger. I’ve tried it & it seems to give a better sense of control. Is there any good reason not to brake this way?Posted 8 years ago
