    On the interview questions page of your Web site, for the question “How can you tell whether your bike's OK?” you wrote, “The basic things are wheels, chain, and handlebars . . .”
    You didn’t mention brakes. The things that you do mention are very important, but most of them are somewhat less important than brakes. I hope you’ll add the advice that a person should make sure their brakes work before riding. Thanks.

    Thanks for your helpful observation. I’ve updated the questions page on my site to include that important brake check.
