So, in a week or so I'm getting a Bianchi Posts from a friend. I plan on riding it SS for now until I'm brave enough to try fixed. Until then, there's a local 50+ mike ride I want to do again this year in June but, rather than ride my geared bike, I want to do it on the Pista. It only had a front brake of course so, my question is, how safe will I be with only the front brake? The ride is mostly flat with on three hills to get down. I want to make sure that I can ride with only the front brake and the read wheel on SS, as I'm not yet ready to ride fixed.
Please, let me know from your experience, what you all suggest.
