Default Re: Front Drum Brake

I had a front drum brake on the other bike I had - the one that got stolen...sigh

They are much better in the wet because they dont get wet and retain their braking ability... on this bike I have kevlar brake pads which also dont fade in the wet but they get very grabby...

If I could afford it I would probably go to a Drum/Drum system because I think there are mounts that can convert a coaster brake such as I have to a Drum brake.... which would be a whole lot of useful on the machine I have at the moment...
