Hi,Gros! I just wanted to say something in the interest of safety if it's all right.A BIG PROBLEM that can get you hurt is a front brake that is set too tight.Rear brakes don't provide as much stopping power as front brakes,but they're less likely to dump you in the road if they lock-up.This is the worst scenario,other than just a wet,slimy road surface:You enter a sharp curve or intersection and you encounter sand or small gravel as you enter the turn.You have been applying the brake with no lock-up,but the front wheel `hits the grits' and locks and skids out from under you.This is why you almost always apply the rear brake first or simultanoeusly with the front one and also why you shouldn't set the front brake too tightly.BYE!
