Which finger and how many?
After discussions in Wales about braking, I realised I'd been using my middle finger to brake, even though I wasn't happy with the grip on the bars.
With my new bike and its fancy-pants adjustable reach levers,  I've discovered index finger braking :o  Feels soooo much more comfortable and safe.....

So, what do you do?
just the index for me
Originally middle then moved my levers and now index or both depending on terrain/speed/lever feel.
middle only.
Keep it foolish...
index, after a lengthy stint of fist....

Ditto! :B
Index only, it's the only way I can brake now. I broke the lever clamp on the Juicy today trying to get the rear lever inboard enough on the Inbred's ridiculously thick bars as I can't 2 finger brake at all any more.
Index and middle for me, just brake the same way I do on my (motor) bike (why change as I am after the same effect  Smile)
