Definitely get a 160 up front. You cannnnnnn mullet it but if you have big loads you're definitely going to want a good rear brake

yeah gotta keep in mind that relative to a normal spencer, all of the rider's weight is on the rear wheel

It's a struggle, but you cut out his tongue, and his last words are "atmo atmo Atmo ATMO ATMOOOOOGORIHGGHRSHGGRLMGGMMGMgrrglegurglegrr....."

Front brakes already do the majority of the braking, it feels pretty funny when you have 300lbs on the front and a 160mm rotor with hydro brakes and you grab even a well modulated fistful. I think everyone I know has gone over the bars of a bullit once or twice.

Just to be clear: Are you saying a 180 rotor up front would be too much brake power toudulate well?

But honestly, I have no idea how I am going to follow through on that plan and I already have a pretty rad spencer. I think I just like fucking with my bikes.

We use basic deore m615 brakes but that's mostly because things get broken so fast we can't afford to put fancy shit on 6 cargo bikes. If I had my own bullit it'd be decked out in Saint shit. Whatever you get don't bother trying to get pre-bled, you're going to have to cut your own hose and set them up yourself because of the length require on the front. Might save you a couple bucks buying shit individually.

This is all great info.
Alright I asked for a brace/disc mount on the rear. I'll be running a mullet when I first build it up, but something to upgrade eventually.
They also redid all the brazeons for triple top tube routing, full housing on the RD since no more under BB shell routing possible. Psyched for this to come together.
