faffi Posted September 24, 2011 Report Share Posted September 24, 2011 It's been said repeatedly here that one should relax ones arms and hands during braking and let the legs support the body. There are sound reasons for this. But how do you get a feel for tyre traction when you're relaxed? How can you feel every minute detail and message that comes from the tyre when you are on the verge of locking up? Personally, I'd like to have the handlebars fitted directly to the wheel axle so that I could get as close to the tarmac/tyre interface as possible. The next best thing, for me, is relatively stiff suspension and stiff arms that let as much as possible come through unfiltered, allowing me to understand when the tyre get this floating feel just before lock-up. Am I wrong? Would a "softer" approach work even better? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
