There was something weird about this picture, until I realized that there was a front brake, but no lever. I downloaded the picture and blew it up and finally found the lever. It's mounted on the right top of the bar next to the stem, with the lever facing the rider. A strange way to have a brake lever, anyone else have their lever like this? I can think of a potential problem with this arrangement.
