    Decide which side you prefer your front brake controlled by and switch the brake cable on the other one.

    U.S. is generally front on the left, Great Briton generally on the right.

    KHS is setup moto style.
    Surprisingly enough, it makes little difference.

    Actually, EVERYWHERE else puts it on the right.

    Ive ridden motos for years, mostly track and off-road stuff and now mostly street and when I jump on the pedal bike to the moto there is absolutely no period Id having to get used to the levers being opposite.

    In other words I have no need to setup my cycling levers moto style.

    Many dirt bikes (motorcycles) have right hand front brakes and many motocross racers prefer their mtbs set up the same way. Mtbs have traditionally been an important training device for motocross racing
