Re: tomos disc brakes. HELP PLEASE

Lance Campeau /

The Tomos front disc brake has MASSIVE stopping power... my highest total overall riding weight is about 440 LBS

Me (wearing full winter riding gear) = 270 LBS

Streetmate (fully kitted for long distance rides) = 170 LBS

I put a lot of faith on my disc brake's ability to stop me in a pinch... I did some non-scientific emergency brake tests last summer. Keep in mind, my total weight for the test was significally more than the average rider (bike+me+cargo = 417 LBS)

Here are the results... All were done on new paved, dry ashphalt

12 MPH to 0 MPH = 8 feet

18 MPH to 0 MPH = 14 feet

30 MPH to 0 MPH = 60 feet

Also, it must be noted that I dug in with both feet on the ground during these emergency stops... (Fred Flintstone style)

Show me a drum brake that can match that... it ain't happening...
