I understand taking your front brake off as i have but, why change the side of your back brake the other side like many do?

some people in britain do it to follow a "trend" sort of fashion thing on BMX's i think. Seems quite *** to me!

Personally, I have my front brake on the left and have done for over 15 years. I`m right handed but it just feels more natural to have it that way.

all the bike here in australia come with the back brake lever on the left and the front on the left so some of the riders change to the right cause they are right handed. but to me i have been riding for about 1 year seriously and the left just feels normal now so i have no need to change it...

Naaaah, the front brake is on the right... back on the left. That's the way all bikes are here in the UK. Well, every bike I have ever bought and rode has been this way anyway....?

I would go arse over tit if they were the other way round! We also drive on the left, you know! :lol:

Or, you could just change it and realize that everyone has their own preferances. It really doesn't matter.

I have seen occasionally on dirtbikes some peopole put both levers on one side of the handlebar (clucth and front brake) except the front brake is a little "baby" lever that's tiny - why i have no damn idea, i asked someone once and he said "because i don't use the front brake" - ?!? ok...
