i want to hear your techniques on de-glazing the hub and the pads. i use sandpaper and sand against the direction of the pads. i do this top both the hub and the shoes. sometimes this works great, and sometimes it seems like it doesn't do any thing.
what grit should i be usiing? superfine? WHAT WORKS EVERYTIME??
BTW locking your rear wheel IS THE GOAL, it may reduce your ability to stop as efficiently as possible, but then you know that you brakes are working ass efficiently as possible, and a controlled non-skidding brake can be made at any time.
if you can't lock up your wheel, then your brakes aren't good enough.
