Re: Brake Poll -- Because sometimes you have to stop the fun!
I changed over to disc brakes from rim brakes when I noticed the side walls of the rims were wearing down after many thousand miles. I've also continued to "ride that thing" straight through the winter. I now have much better stopping power and they work even in snow, rain and ice. It's well worth upgrading to disc brakes, other wise you'll be spending your money on new rims eventually, as well as taking a chance of a rim failure at thirty miles or so an hour. I consider disc brakes a necessity on a MB. There's a reason that they're so popular on motorcycles. The above poll shows that they're popular here, too! I'll stop here, (no pun intended)LOL
