    Very nice.

    How well do the dual rear brakes work? Seems like it would be a pain to get them adjusted evenly.
    Need: McMahon brake for roller cam mounts, Mountain Goat fork.

    Beautiful!!
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    "Seems like it would be a pain to get them adjusted evenly"

    A pivot in the lever blade equalizes the pressure each time.

    Beautiful. Interesting use of a drop bar in the back along with the flat bar in front.

    Didn't want to give up the massive brake lever on the front. Drops give more hand positions and makes for a happy stoker.

    Having the second brake come on later (with more lever pull) might work better...kind of like the secondary carbs coming in on a multiple carburetor setup on a Goat.

    Mountain Goats have carburetors? Now I'm thoroughly confused.

    We had a blue Skyliner at the shop I worked in in Toronto. It was so beautiful. Not as tricked out as yours though with the double brakes though!
