When I'm not bicycling, I'm a Linux SysAdmin. I'm on the board of my local bicycle advocacy group.

Bikes are my primary transportation. A 2009 Surly Long Haul Trucker, set up as a commuter and a 2012 Trek Ion CX. I also take the bus, but do not own a car.

comment What is the actual cable pull of brake levers?
@mattnz: I don't think that would be the case, since you need to be able to pull the brake cable some standard amount of mm in order to fully activate the brake. There might be extra pull depending on the mounting, grip, etc, but you'd need to have at least the minimum for that standard kind... There's also lever ratio issues (pairing long pull levers with short pull brakes would require very strong hands)
