Modulation for feathering brakes, sounds like someone thinks I'm a good mtb'er, how kind
Down hill for me is usually, aaaaarrgg going too fast and grab a handful of rear brake, aaarggg canti's not powerful enough still moving, all weight over back wheel and prayer, aaahh slowing at last !
Thus a more sudden application of speed retardation is fine with me. Also though I can let the pads sit further off the rim for more mud clearance so that the initial travel is just thin air not rim straight off !. Finally its the only decent brakes I have currently that are not fitted to another bike.
Scarily sudden brakes are unlikely but i'll probably crash without their involvement anyway as CV is new terrain to me !
Looking forward to it but not 40 plus miles by scooter into indian country and then once battered and knackered 40 plus miles back to civilisation. Must show willing though, 'The Ken' and 'P20' are going much further than me !
