2 1/2 brake levers!
The right lever is a dummy, fitted as a hand hold only. I've chopped the blade down so that it doesn't rattle. The left drop lever operates the front brake, and an additional cross-top lever is fitted. This allows braking from tops, hoods or drops riding positions. The cross-top is handy in traffic, although being fixed gear, the brake is almost redundant. 38 cm bars are great when lane splitting. I normally ride 42 cm.
