I have received many comments of my comment about rear brake direction. Seems we all do it out of habit WHY? In all the years I rode and raced I NEVER saw anyone mount them forwards! Goes back to dark ages I guess when brakes even had a clamp around the tube to help avoid shudder, Why in the drive chain on the RIGHT side? this HAS been discussed before BUT WHY?
