Well anyway, Brakes. Mind Job? BRAKES: When & How Much!
Any fools should realise, it takes human judgement to decide when & how hard to brake, your body does NOT subconsciously decide when to BRAKE for you!
Of course it takes a human being to rationalise what to do (ie Your bike won't do it for you, and other people won't tell you when to brake), and how much force to use, obviously it takes ARMS, HANDS, FINGERS, LEGS, FEET, A HEAD, A NECK, A BRAIN, TWO EYES, A NOSE, A MOUTH to ride a bike well.....
The point being more experienced and fitter riders can read terrain better and faster, knowing how and when to use their brakes (More efficiently then less experienced riders, etc), obviously hydraulic brakes give an advantage, more control, less fade, less friction, etc.
But you naturally created, born in an old barn types, don't get confused with spontaneous combustion, or internal combustion, or artificial intelligence, you organic natural bio-yogurt eating freaks!
