              lol, I hope you're not serious about the neon!

              Those "brake clips" you're talking about? What is it and how do you use it? I don't think I've seen them before.

                I am suuuuuuuuuuuuer about the neon - gotta be cool to visit my girlfriend at night Pimpin'

                those brake clips usage: u put the small wheen thingy on your bike wheel and then the clips around it - works like in a car. You can see them in expensive bikes

                  These clips are located near the wheelhubs. Standard brakes on a mountainbike or a bike like that one posted by Patryk can have brakes located at the bike fork, you see the two that racks out ? Standard V brakes is very common!


                  The Brake clips offers you better braking, faster braking too.



                  This is the one I had a few months ago.



                  Unfortunately It got stolen exactly around 5 months ago.

                  Btw who of you likes biking in forests and gravel pits ?

                    Now I see, with a picture of the brake actually on a bike... but I'll stick with the trusty rubber brake

                    I like hiking in forests but biking is too much work

                    Trails along lake shores and rivers are my favourite.

                            I used to ride a bike from 1997 to 1999. Now it is useless because I always drive a car is easier than the bike.
