How limited are drum brakes? I know they have less stopping power and produce more heat in 1 spot but how limited is it actually. The biggest hill I hit regularly I would hit 60 kph if i didnt brake and im on it for lets say 2-3 minutes.
Would a drum brake explode there? Would it kill me? what about nearby drivers? Would there be a crater?
But seriously would it work?
Also the main advantage I see is less maintenance? Is it that much less? Is it worth it in your opinions?
I know I can google this stuff.. I have... but no one quantifies how bad it is at braking and how little maintenance it is... for good reason.
