Default Re: Build Recommendations

The most important part of your build is the front brake. Having just tried my first motorized bike with a front rim brake, I'm appalled at the quantity of people here that consider this "good enough" being that it is just SO BAD. Any disc brake setup or a SA 90mm drum would be best. Front disc setup will run you at least $250 and a drum will be at least $150- use a disc fork with the drum as it will be ready for the braking forces on the fork leg.
