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
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.
