Re: no more excuses.. the rear brake is your friend

I know my woodcraft rearsets came with the option to add in the rear brake lever spring which I did. I might try to experiment with the rear brake a little next season.

Re: no more excuses.. the rear brake is your friend

it's definitely there for a reason, and not so everyone can tell you NOT to use it lol.

I think a few rear brake only drills at the beginning of next season is on my agenda so we can be more friendly with each other on a regular basis.

Re: no more excuses.. the rear brake is your friend

i like the idea of a rear brake only drill..
taking the rear pads off and filing/grinding a bevel will serve 2 purposes. 1) it will give the desired affect outlined in the video of a bit less outright rear brake power 2) it makes rear wheel changes SOOOOO much easier, as the rear rotor slides right up in there EVEN if the pads came together.
