Generally, relying too much on a front brake will land the rider's face on the road or trail surface. With the Half Bike 3 it appears that the only brake is a drum brake in the front wheel. Given the unique rider position, etc. how is it that the HB3 doesn't 'stop on a dime' with the rider launched forward onto the road surface? Ouch!

Hi Mark, This is not possible, since there a technique that quickly becomes intuitive. All you'll need to do is shift your weight to the back, a bit like you're going to do a squat. You can see form our video here, the rider breaking at full speed >

Sweet. Thanks Bob. Looks simple enough and the guy in the video seemed to still have all his teeth. Bonus!
