Sebastian says:

I grip the flats of the bars and the hoods with equal frequency, and I'm often riding in pretty heavy traffic. The crosstops make it so I can brake in either hand position.

how did you manage to make both sets of brakes levers work? cable wise?

Sebastian says:

They're designed to run straight through the cable that's already there. All it takes is to set up is a cable cutter to split the housing at the crosstop levers, and a couple extra cables ferrules.
