Re: Stainless v. rubber - a brake line question
Next to putting very sticky rubber on ur bike, I believe braided brake lines should be one of the first things you modify on ur bike. You do need the advantages of braided lines. If uve had the chance to sample rubber, then braided straight away, ull find that braided have much, much more "feel". This can only be a good thing. Helps you to know whats happening at the front wheel when ur braking. Have you ever locked a front wheel accidentally? Ur tyres are the only thing sticking u to the ground, and braided lines and brake pads are the easiet things to change to help you stop better. For al those that will say "brakes are for pussies" tell me this. When that car pulls out in front of you which would you rather have, 25 more hp or very sticky tyres, braided lines and good pads?
