i went on a date once with a guy who actually had an itinerary, a list of places he wanted to go. i thought it was strange and felt like i was on a tour and he was my tour guide. we got one drink in each place and then we'd move on to the next place. by the end of the date, my feet were killing me. i was in heels and a dress and i felt sweaty and tired because we must walked for miles and miles in downtown. then, he offered me dinner and im thinking, "finally, we can sit down for longer than one drink," so we hop in a cab and instead of going to a restaurant, we go back to his dark dingy studio apartment. it resembled the apartment in the twix commercial, where the guy claims his place is a mess because he's been robbed. so i ask him, "weren't we going to dinner?" and he said, "yes, we're eating here. i'll cook for you." i was trying to be a good sport and sometimes home cooked meals are better than a night in a restaurant but he never got to cooking. instead he served me another drink and tried getting fresh with me. that's when i made my exit. hungry, for not having had dinner, and not even buzzed because for every drink we had, we walked like 3 miles. ugh!

In bicycles today are caliper brakes and cantilever brakes.
bike disc wheelsof the wheel to stop the bike and are considered rim brakes.
While calipers have been and continue to be the most common brakes found on bikes,
the newer cantilevers arecarbon track framestronger ysbike01 and have become more popular in recent years.
Rim brakes work through a system of levers and cables.
Cables connect the brake levers (located on the handlebars) to the brake arms
that surround the top ofroad bicycle framesthe wheels and are secured to the fork in front or seat stay in back.
When the levers are flexed by hand, the cables pull, closing the brake arms around the rims.
When the levers are released thecarbon wheelsbrakes spring back to their original position.
The section of the brakes, called the brake pad or brake shoe,that comes into contact with the moving rim is usually made of rubber or leather to maximize the friction needed to stop.
All other parts of the braking system—arms, cable, and levers—must be rigid
and precisely positioned to transfer the relatively light force exerted by hands on brake leversto the high power needed in the brakes for effective braking.
