    But if you're not moving in the first place I fail to see how brakes can assist you in that

    Good brakes can definitely make your average quicker if they give you confidence to descend quicker and carry your speed closer into the bends.

    Not much help on climbing though :-)

    empathise with your original post OP.

    and your tongue tied response.

    A pretty hot blond called me a hero on a recent Dynamo ride thanks to my mega overloaded 26 inch wheeled thing.

    which I was riding for my own dubious pleasure.

    not aware of the hyperbole tag.

    just ride on - and ride what you want for your own pleasure.

    if someone likes it rates it or not, well it doesn't really matter.

    Lance used his brakes on uphill corners though.

    Unless they're Avid BB5 brakes, they just squeal while doing nothing!

    Entry level roadbike used to (and probably still does) cover most cheaper roadbike up to say £600 I should think. My Via Nirone at £550 was advertised as such several years ago.
