"Enough braking power to make the wheels skid on dry, clean, level pavement."

I wish! Of my five mopeds only one of them has enough braking power to lock one of the wheels.


Re: moped riding tips

Hey,Chris! I thought they encouraged anti-lock braking. I am totally in compliance with that already! (:^)

Brakes locking rear wheel.

I like doing skids..... spinning/sliding the back end to the side in some loose sand.... yeah, my rear wheel will skid pretty easily.

The front wheel I made sure won't "lock" under normal road conditions.

Anyone else? Comments about :

"Do your rear brakes lock up or not...?"

Re: Brakes locking rear wheel.

My rear brakes lock up really good, i love doing skids from 25mph and when the roads are all wet, i do like 180's lol,

Hey Nick

Hey Nick,

can you really lock up your back wheel on your VA? If you can do that then my back brake must be completly gone.
