Default Re: Weak Ass Brakes

I use a front disc brake and rear coaster. Had to cut the sprocket using a dremel as well as slightly tweek the coaster arm to clear the rag joint bolts. Dual brakes should be manditory for anything capable of 20 mph or more, stopping is more important than going. I'm not gonna trust a rim clamp brake if my bike hits 30, not tomention your grip power diminishes a lot when they get wet, such as hitting a puddle or driving thru a sprinkler.
