So I installed a back brake a while ago to fuck about with, and one thing I just cant see to get my head round is riding with fingers on my lever! I mean while actually doing tricks, I feel as tho I've absolutely no grip on that side of my bars. Is this something I'll just get used to or do I need to tweak why my lever lies ie angle wise?

Cheers peeps

You'll get used to it, i run my lever like 30 degrees from parallel with my bars.

Fuck with the angle and see what works best for you. Otherwise, you'll get used to it. I rarely have my finger on the lever.

If I was using my front stopper I would run two fingers on both levers. If not, one finger on rear, sometimes no fingers on em.

I tend to run 2 fingers on, but only when flat riding or after a trick. Like, when I go to jump all fingers are on the bars, and then right as I land, I feel my 2 go to the brakes (I run front and back). My levers are far enough away that I have to think about using them. I can't just rest my fingers on them while I ride.
