    Today I broke the brake clasp while breaking at an intersection with a car coming in my path !
    It snapped !
    Woops, if you know what that's like, . . There ain't no Brakes, The conventional Brake clasp holding the brake arm to the frame may not be tough enough, Definitely worth checking out !.xx.

    I put my front brakes behind my forks (instead of in the default locale)to avoid these issues because I know the higher speeds and more weight could be an issue. I feel much safer and my bike stops better.
