is it silly to go riding with only one brake?
Just a front brake: maybe Just a rear brake: not a cat in hells chance!
Hmmm, I’m the opposite particularly if wet conditions: no way I’d want to bring the bike to a stop on just the front brake. Braking on the front in corners with the thought of the front tyre washing out puts me off as well.Posted 9 years ago
“Andy is it IS mount? I have that Mono M4 from the Shermans in the garage from when I switched to the Totems. Can bring it with me in the morning. – is 180mm + your adapter? “
its for my 66s, so IS mount yep. can you bring it anyway. I’ll bring adaptors/bolts/washers/rotors etc 🙂
I’ve got 203 or 180mm discs and two adaptors so it should fit.

Maybe, but short of riding along tow paths there’s not much you can do, if you’re going down a hill, the back brake will likely not keep your speed in check whatever you try and do.
Well, iirc you’re a Surrey Hills local and so am and I’ve survived so far so will just have to disagree on that 😀
…or maybe its the sheer awesome power of my Avid rear brake 😉Posted 9 years ago
You do RC Nukeproof 🙂 You up there tomorrow? I will be, S-Works Epic, with a bird on another S-Works Epic, black/yellow kit, say hey!
It must be my diddy 140 rotor, being all inadequate. Definitely stand by my decision though, back brake isn’t really all that useful!Posted 9 years ago
