    Thanks for the link, buy sadly my friend ordered yesterday and I ordered a week ago, I only order when I need more than one thing. And normaly only when it's somthing that is really needed. I'll try to make a spooner with some plastic little plates and ducktape.

      If you can get hold of one, these:

      are quite good. Make sure you get the right one for your handle hand.

      I pretty much put mine on found a small but long hill and just went for it. I use mine more as adrag brack on long descents. Soo just dont pull it up heaps and you'll be fine (by that I mean not face plant)

        Not only does KH use a brake, he's a master of feathering it on super steep DH runs. It's very much an acquired art, and very helpful for some (me). It also results in much smoother pedal action on step terrain since back-pressuring is not the only means of limiting speed - the entire point of using a brake.

        That much said, you should learn to ride sans brake, otherwise you're back-pressuring skills (essential for all hard Muni) will never get deveolped.

          I didn't like it when I first started doing muni, now I use it for long downhills and steep descents. It takes some skill to feather to the brake so it doesn't dump you, esp if the track is rough. I won't ride without one, but there are days when I don't use it much.

          I like it enough that I'm getting my son one
