Cool The "Clake"

Here's an interesting concept that was on "The New Inventors" TV show the other night.....a single operated hand device that operates the clutch when pulled 1/2 way in, then operates the rear brake when pulled all the way in.......hence the name "Clake" as opposed to the "Brutch".....(seems too aggressive a name that one) seen here on the ABC web site

http://www.abc.net.au/newinventors/txt/s1692861.htm

spose main advantage would be for off roads/scrambles bikes where the rider sticks a right leg out to pivot /steady around a right hander corner, and therefore does not have any rear brake to trail.

This particular entry did win the "invention of the night", and goes further on in the competition.

cheers
