Default Re: sturmey archer front dynamo debaucle?!

You guys with the S/A front hub, how do you find the braking with those? I have the X-FD for a while
and the brake is merely adequate. I have heard people rave about the braking and some of the bike
forums claim they're about as good as disk brakes! I'd put mine more on par with basic caliper brakes.
It's Okay, but I expected better from some of the reading I did. OR maybe its just all the weight I'm
trying to stop. IDK. I'm thinking about the X-FDD for another build but REALLY need good braking for it.
...I'm not saying we should just kill all the stupid people. Just do away with warning labels and let things sort themselves out.
