Brakes - advice wanted. *LINK*

Posted By: Barry Wilson

Hi folks, this is my first posing as we just now get back into tandeming.

We've just bought a S/H Cannondale tandem on eBay. It has Hope Mono M4 disc brakes on Hope Big'un hubs and Sun Rhino Lite rims. (I hope you know what all that stuff means)

Are these brakes adequate for touring? We weight 70 and 55 Kg and don't wimp out on fast descents but these are our first hydraulic anchors and they don't look to have massive thermal capacity.

If necessary I could fit a rim Vee-Brake but should it go on the back or front?

Thanks for taking time to reply.
