Not if you have disc brakes :). They fix everything. Ask the pros.

Can we ditch the 50 post requirement or even the discounts / incentives altogether? This forum is filling up with garbage off topic posts.

It is a hilariously novel way of bumping his post count though.

Ever climb on 17% gradient with wet leaves.....Don't
I knew better too. Fortunately nothing too bad went wrong. Just a little scary for a moment. Maybe I should've had disc ;)

Yes, you would have had no problem with discs.

Cycling on wet leaves is only safe above 40 kph.

The real question is which is better on wet leaves, an aero frame so your faster and spend less time on the wet leaves or a lightweight frame so you don't apply as much pressure to the wet leaves......discuss! Lol

Well, I did the most educated thing before posting a reply and checked his 7 posts. He's made comments on balancing to braking power on Enve's so I've decided to say this.... Dude, really? Didn't you know wet oak leaves are more slippery than birch but birch has a greater contact patch than sakura.... This is only if you're riding on tarmac but watch out for those Kapok trees in the amazon jungle... They can be pretty killer during the months of June to August but are perfectly "unslippable" from January to March...

Hope this helps...because if this is a serious question, you're not going to get any serious answers.
