I'm with you on this one TLL. Under steambao's theory, we'd never be able to coast on our bikes.
Steambao, the wheel only slows significantly when the brakes are applied. If you release the brakes, the only thing slowing you is rolling and wind resistance, which is there whether you've got the brakes applied or not.
It's not my theory. It was my physics teacher's theory!! But he was the one marking my paper
This topic is still very interesting and I believe both methods have pros/cons in certain situations. I'm going to put my life on the line in the name of science and run a test on this
But now I want to get hydraulic brakes because I've never seen those in action before. Is it true that hyrdaulics is all power or nothing?
