Default Re: New Bike Build

With regards to the brakes; to each thier own, if you like dual levers great, if you don't, your call. I've used a double brake lever on every build so far.. I've found that if they're set up right there are no problems. When set correctly, they will stop a bike doing 32 kph (or 20 mph) - the local 'limit' for powered bikes inside of 20 feet if you grab 'em hard. (Local legislation says bike has to be able to stop within 9 meters (30 feet) from 32 kph).


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
