So a while back there was "hand brake," and now there's a leg brake version.

Just like before, if you're squeamish, don't scroll down. If you're awesome, do. But be warned.
















































Happened in Fernie, BC:







The wildest part? The guy slapped the lever back on his bike after it was removed!

Agreed, that's not how you bleed your brakes...

Brakes are dangerous, maybe the hipsters are on to something. Ask Gully how he removed a finger with a brake rotor.
