Disk Brakes - too much power ?
Everywhere, anyone is talking about the awesome breaking power of disk brakes, but to be honnest it scares me!!!. I live in Asia where traffic can be unpredictable to say the least, and when going downhill at 60 km/h and something unexpected happen i hit the brakes hard. But the braking power of these brakes would stop the bike instantly, and I would continnue flying head first into whatever surprised me with exactly 60 km/h.
Does anyone have any idea on how to reduce the braking power of the front disk brake. I'm right now considering reducing the diameter of the disk (160mm) or changing to v brakes.
