Re: Staton and NuVinci for heavy use in the field
sounds like a good plan. but in my experience:
Downhill angle + Strong front brake system = Facial Road Rash
make sure you have more braking power in the rear.
when i made my bike, the only thing i could use are side pull cantilevers. but i set them up so the rear brake tightens first and puts drag on the bike before the front brake really kicks in. BTW, i didnt notice if you posted this or not, but make sure you at least have a front shock fork installed, otherwise the vibration from the engine and the bumps in the road will make you cry after the 4th or 5th ride! lol
