Unfortunately, Lewis, the little compensator at the handlebar divides the force in the same way as the box on the mudguard.

The twin cable setup is admittedly simple and direct and is widely used on twin brake bikes, including Birmingham Scotts. Why does it work for them? I think because the brake drum diameter is bigger – to my limited knowledge, 7 inches would be a minimum. Quite a proportion of them have two leading shoes as well.
