Default Re: Gnarley-Davidson

Zane I don't actually have a drum brake on my bike, I have a disc on the rear, and a disc hub on the front with no disc (don't feel I need it with this engine) but that was only because my bike was built to a strict budget and i got the wheels (MTB wheels) very cheaply. Sometimes I wish I had gone a coaster brake rear

Drum rear is probably better as you don't need the pedals to be in the right spot to brake, but if you have a good front brake the rear shouldn't matter as much..... But it does mean more cables which I'm personally not fond of, it's just personal preference
