I use 2 fingers on the front brake, so I still have plenty of control from the grip of the other fingers.One thing I always wondered is how you can still control the throttle with your fingers over the lever. I can either cover my brakes but have sheety throttle control or can control my throttle but have to reach for the brake lever. The palm alone isn't enough for me for proper throttle control (I have very small hands though).
Maybe I need adjustable levers. :|
Just be sure that when the lever is close enough to the bar that it is easy to reach you still have enough travel to get your full braking.As I said I don't doubt the benefits of covering the levers it's just that my fingers are so short that I have to reach for them. With two fingers on the lever I can't turn the throttle through it's full range of motion, my fingers would just glide of the lever. I think I'll be in the market for adjustable levers once a bit more money comes my way (if that ever happens...).
