I really really like the stopping power in this front brake, but I want to use it with total confidence.

Thanks for the feedback.

You're very welcome, longer bolts/screws and nyloc nuts with a dab of loctite would sure be some extra insurance, by the way I like your bike all the way around, you did an excellent job on it, very clean build.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
