Welcome to Jugana from Croatia

Jugana is a brand new TravelScoot owner with a question.

I found very useful info about CrampBuster on your blog. As I am disabled and have weakness in my hands too it's very hard for me to pull the brake levers. It's not a problem when driving on even grounds as the drive is mostly defensive, but as my hometown is all in hills, it's very hard for me to go downhill as brakes should be applied for a longer time.

Maybe you or some of your friends could have a suggestion what to do. To your knowledge, is there something like CrampBuster for brakes too?

If you have a suggestion for Jugana, post it in the comments or email it to me, elizabeth@ifisher.com.

  1. Ask Tony at TravelScoot to fix you a 'foot brake'. It could be set easily on the foot rest and you could use your legs to slow it up by applying light pressure to the brakes.

  2. I have a vague memory of someone having their brake lever loosened to make it easier to apply but I don't know who or how.

  3. Thank you both Dean and Linda for your advice. I wrote to Hardy about this problem but he never suggested setting the brake on the foot rest. That it could be set easily is music to my ears. Thanks, Dean.

    Yes Linda that may be true as after fiddling a little with the brake lever, it seems easier to apply.
