Since Rob posted about his front brakes I want to jump in about my rear one. The foot lever is very hard to mash and stop the bike. I can lock them up but it takes a lot of pressure to do so. They do a great job when using the hand lever. I have only ridden one other rinny and it was the same way. It was the demo at the dealer and I made a post on several boards and the feedback was mostly that it was out of adjustment. Does anyone else have hard to mash foot levers?
