I used V's with my Dx's when the V's became more populair. I was completely used to a "very responsive brake" but have to admit it was like a lightswitch.
One day a friend asked me if he could try my bike (you see it comming don't you
) and that was ok with me. I did warn him for the brakes, also because I put left right and right left like on motobikes...he was carefull he replied. Of he go and he was more like a roadracer so he stayed on the tarmac, his legs pumping like an old diesel engine...faster and faster...and faster...a T junction is comming up...he slowly reach for the brakes...he slows down a bit and swings to the left...and from the left A COMPLETE FAMILY SHOWS UP!!! He hit the brakes and is launched into orbit! At least 5 meters he was flying and he landed without wheels on his chin. Today he still has marks all over his body to tell the story. We laughed a lot that day but he will never ever ask me if he can try my bike
