You are not restarting from the ditch
'Aero' and 'climbing' make me laugh. 'Gravel' has some point, in that it morphed from 'CX' bikes which had never seen a cyclocross course.
Ask a racing driver. Being able to brake later lets youmaintain you speed for longer
But if you're not moving in the first place I fail to see how brakes can assist you in that
You are looking to see how you can use brakes to get you moving? I think you're on your own looking for that.
I suppose if you're on a downhill you can start moving by releasing your brakes. Does that help?
I have a bike I ride it
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.

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.
