even mention cable brakes in my post. I said that hydraulic brakes
work especially well. I have used bb7 brakes on an xtracycle and they
stopped fine. However, the lever feel was spongy and they required
more frequent adjustments for cable stretch and pad wear. They also
needed a lot of winter maintenance to combat the sludge covered
Minnesota roads that I ride on.
