Default Re: Weak Ass Brakes

I STRONGLY suggest you test the modified brake arms by stomping the brakes REAL hard a few times before you take off on a ride.
If it lets go in a panic stop, bad things can happen.
I had a customer bring me a wasted bike for fork and rim replacement caused by the coaster brake arm breaking where he welded it when he had to stop to avoid a pedestrian walking out to the mailbox. Lots of broken parts and road rash was the result.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
