Re: Magura MT5 four-piston front brake improves brake power and modulation

Even a coaster brake can lockup a tyre, meaning you can't get anymore braking power than that. So technically the last thing spending more money on brakes is about, is simply more braking power. It's all about better modulation & dissipating heat for staying power brake-wise on long descents. Well a...

Going by the throttle display there's a little voltage drop from about 75v to 73v. Any...

Cyclone Co-axial - motor dies everytime I install/re-install chain

Hello everyone. I have posted on this forum before but it's so infrequently over the years that it's easier to start again.
