 o I have learned to adapt to the servo brakes by "choking up" on
   the hand brake lever. That is, I use only two fingers to apply the
   brake lever, and I position them as closely to the lever's "hinge"
   as possible. This reduced the amount of leverage I can use, and
   therefore, applies less brake force per finger force applied. This
   technique has allowed me to brake pretty smoothly.
