I love my R20 but I can't stand the braking. I opted to keep the original chrome wheels, caliper brakes and long-pull levers it came with.
I do stop but it takes a lot of hand strength for me to stop fully and smoothly. I also have to use both brakes to stop even though I'm not going very fast.
Any way of improving the stopping power of the R20 without changing the wheels?
I do have the Kool Stop Continental brake pads on which definitely improved on the braking from before. I've also adjusted the cable tension as much as possible. The tires aren't bald.
Would upgrading the brakes and/or brake levers help? What type of brake/brake lever would work on an R20 with chrome wheels? Sorry for the newbie questions but all the choices I'm reading about are just confusing the hell out of me.
