My bike currently has a straight handlebar. Both the front and rear brake are operated by hand, with a brake lever on each side of the handlebar. This allows me to pull them very hard, which is good.
I consider changing the handlebar to a comfort/cruiser handlebar. But I worry that because the ends are tilted backwards (towards me), this makes it more difficult to pull the brake levers hard enough. Is this the case in practise?
Comfort/cruiser bikes usually operate the rear brake by foot, hence they don't have this problem to the same extent.
