Thanks for that. At the moment, as I’m still running in the brakes (having had them relined by the excellent Saftek somewhere oop North) plus nylon-lined cables on there too, the brakes aren’t too bad.
They’re never going to be in the stoppies league, but having owned a ’36 Velo with a front drum the size of a jam jar lid, and a 600-odd pound Indian with the front drum braking area smaller than a Triumph 3TA, I try and anticipate (not always possible, obviously!) rather than rely on old braking systems.
I’ll see how it goes.
