The longest I have cycled in a day is 16 miles on a QUAX crossfire 24 inch. How do people go so far but with reduced pain lol?

stephenpatriots . . . I'm still new to long distance riding but ' reduced pain ' seems appropriate. In my experience riding a 24" for more than 25 miles is a pain (even with short cranks). My understanding is that conditioning is the key, short breaks and also having a handlebar to take some of the weight off of your posterior.
Also taking appropriate precautions depending on your age / problems with joints, like knee supports ( and in extreme situations where not finishing is not an option, having topical ibuprofen!).

Question How to set up a Drag Brake using Hydraulic Disk

There are some pretty step descents on the London to Brighton route, so I was thinking about a drag brake. I was wondering if one can use a 5 speed cable shift that actuates a a secondary reservoir that's tied into the primary braking system, without impeding the performance of the touch braking system?
