If the rear braking is pants, try a tektro power hanger bolted where the roller is. Had this change made on my rts 2 bitd and it worked a treat.

Makes me think about de-modernising/retrofying my team rts. Those cooks cranks look great on that frame. Not jealous of your black control tech bars at all, honest????
