Default Re: where to put brake? Front or back?

Not unless you were trying to by lunging your weight and leaning way forward while heavy braking. When you put your brake on, try it and see how hard to do it really is.
Not to worry you, but I have heard of guys having problems with the front fenders breaking and jamming up in the forks as they roll forward. Just check your fender weekly for any signs of trouble. The main place to look is at the little tab or tabs where the front fender mounts to the fork. If your front fender has front and rear supports along with that tab there isnt much to worry about. Its only if it has one support and the tab that there might be issues.
