The outer cable is divided at the additional lever. The lever pushes outer cable, rather than pulling inner cable. The additional lever is very effective, and doesn't compromise operation of the drop lever in any way. These levers were developed for cyclo-cross racing, but have found favour with a much wider audience. I have them on all of my drop bar bikes. Recommended!

Hi Carl, It's an old ( 60s?) Wrights W3N Brown Leather Saddle. Very similar in shape and form to a Brooks B17 but with a 'textured' finish to the top surface as opposed to the smooth finish of the Brooks B17 equivalent. I think the Wrights Saddle company was eventually incorporated into the Brooks company but I think this one might date to the late 60s or thereabouts. I have both and there's not much difference between them although the grade of leather *might* be a tad thicker on the B17..
