A question for the masses...

Is putting a drum brake on the front of a Schwinn Typhoon a recipie for disaster, or is the fork sturdy enough to take it?

The pessimist in me envisions a shuddering front end under braking, but I'm no expert on this stuff.

The fork in question:

Greetings,

I have experience with modern front and rear drums. The front won't cause a sudden endo or anything. It behaves much like a very good rim brake setup. Even braking consistency in all weather is what I like about drums mostly. Low noise as well. I rarely use them on performance rides due to the heavier weight.


Too much????
