    I am making a 79cc motorized bicycle with a predator engine. I plan on using a manual clutch. Would adding a disc brake to the jackshaft be pointless because I can fully disengage the clutch manually? I have never used a disc brake on my jacksaft in any of my builds so I have no know idea how they work lol. Thank You!

    I have used them in the past and really dont care for them, braking is too sensitive with them. I have one on a bike that is only used as a 3rd brake to help slow the bike down. Stick with a good front disk, coaster rear should work that way you only have two levers on the bars, I assume you will be using the 3D clutch?
