    Honestly, any decent (read, not wal-mart bike) brake should be able to stop you and throw you over the handlebars if you grab it hard enough. I'd go with a set of tektro calipers and kool stop pads....

    They'll certainly slow you downon the uphill :) Downhill not so much. Unless you were talking about in both directions.

    I think classic steel frames had seat tubes that are too thin for the motor to fit.

    As cool as this video is, I believe carbon fiber is laid a certain way to deal with loads coming from a particular direction.

    The ironic thing is that the only reason I really ever drive my car is to go get groceries every week. (But then again, I generally buy more that what will fit on my trailer.) I bike for everything...

    Get a fat bike. I've heard they're a blast on mountain bike trails, and they'll certainly slow you down.

    Am I right in assuming you want to use both levers so you can use both hands to pull the brake at the same time for more leverage?

    Ahh, ok. Still, the front brake should have plenty of stopping power unless you're on an old bike with chromed steel rims. I still think it's out of adjustment. I don't know if what you're wanting to...

    Why would you want to do this? Those cables that pull both brakes at the same time are very problematic. First, they require a lot of adjustment. Second, if you pull both brakes at the same time with...

    Right about now, I'd love to be riding that thing on a beach. (It's cold here... very cold.)

    I've always been skeptical of fat bikes. They seem like a gimmick. Sure, they can ride over a bit of snow, but not much more than a mountain bike.

    Well, I've KINDA changed my mind. There are...

    There's a reason cars are "tall" now-a-day. It's pedestrian impact standards. It makes cars ugly.
