I had a kid email me the other day asking why you would want brakes at the trails. It was a legitimate question and his reasoning behind it made sense so I resisted the urge to reply back with some smart assed dickarty. I certainly appreciate a good set of stoppers and I think its safe to say that the majority of people who come to this site do as well. Kurt over at The Union just posted up a review of Odyssey’s new Springfield Brake. Not much has changed in the last two decades as far as brake design goes but Odyssey definitely thought a bit out of the box with these. Head over to The Union and check them out.
