Response to there's a number of places on t interwebs doing cheap(ish)

hydraulic brakes are a useless gimmick, just like telescopic forks or rear suspension

a nice single leading shoe brake (twin leading shoe if you must, but stay away from the quads) slows you down much more gently, which is beneficial both for your digestive system and metal health
