    Brakes are fine, rushing to get to work is another thing.

      That lady owns her own buisness. She wasn't rushing. her business is in the opposite direction.. You need to see the damn hill for yourself before you get finger happy.

    It's possible that the brake pads were just replaced and were not broken in as yet. New pads will fade quickly on a hill if not broken in properly.

    You people have no f****g shame. The woman was not rushing anywhere. I saw the whole incident enfold. You cannot rush on that scary hill it steep, short, curvy and complicated. You people need to just shut the hell up. Your turn is coming next.
