Maybe you ride a fixed gear and think you don’t need brakes. Please reconsider. If you have properly designed, manufactured, installed and maintained brakes, they are at the same time pro-choice and pro-life. Feel free to use your legs to stop as often as it is convenient or fun, but it is sometimes wonderful to give a lever a squeeze and stop more quickly.
I feel bad for the company that produced the recalled brakes described here (not to mention their customers). The recall is not described on the company’s website (that I can find). Disclosing a recall is surely difficult, but not disclosing it would be harder still (for me). Maybe carbon fiber brakes are not such a good idea.
Yours with eyes open and hands over my brake levers (and now thinking ties are a good idea for casual bicycle rides),
