Does a bike stop differently because it's being ridden by racer? We aren't talking about trail braking, or threshold braking or an advanced skill set. If using 2 fingers on the brakes is considered advanced; I guess I've been doing advanced brake application since I started riding pedal bikes without coaster brakes when I was 5 or 8 or something like that... You don't put allot of faith in your students, and the end product shows. You don't always get to pick how quickly you need to stop Maybe because your "range" is a fucking parking lot! On top of the fact you're riding cruisers with shit controls. So if your basing your skill standards on what works in a parking lot safely on bikes with shitty brakes I really don't know what to say.
