I'm surprised that in all this disucssion there's been no comment at all on ABS for bikes. It's becoming more prevalent. Reading Longride's post, which I happen to agree with, that there is a limit to what a rider can effectively process and react to when riding, does ABS add an effective technology to assist us? Or does it take away a level of control? Because I'm not a professional rider, I tend to look for technical or engineering solutions to assist me, even though I have over 30 years experience riding. I've never owned an ABS bike; probably won't for a while. I know when I took the Skip Barber Car Control class, we trained with and without ABS. Clearly ABS allowed all but one of the pros (Vic Elford) teaching the class to stop much faster, and in greater control. Anybody out there who has an ABS bike? What do you think of the system?
