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.
