    The bent's back wheel is very easy to lock, and I have trouble feeling
    when it's about to. I just notice when it does as the back slides a
    bit and think "hmm, better back off that brake a bit".

    So far, haven't got the front to even think about locking or sliding.

    See what happens when I get a disk on it :)
