Sometime back, someone here suggested that there was really no advantage to having rear disk brakes over drum brakes, unless they are anti-lock, which I don't think any of us have. His point was that it makes no difference which type you have if the rear wheels are locked-up, you're going to stop in the same distance either way.
Seemed to make sense to me, but I still see lots of discussion about adding rear disks so I'm wondering if there is more to it than there seems to be.
Even now, as I write this, it makes me wonder if not having anti-lock brakes means it really makes no difference on the front wheels as well? A locked-up wheel is a locked-up wheel...right???
