Front vs Rear Brakes

  • front (comprises the bulk of braking power): e-brake, general riding coming up to a corner, cover it at intersections. You should use your front brake often
  • rear: stability (e.g. riding slowly up to traffic lights while splitting waiting for them to go green), roundabout (helps to keep the revs up and so keep the bike stable), cover it while splitting traffic, o-turns. can be used in conjunction with front brake or can be used in isolation for stability
