I didn't know the scooter wheel had a drum brake when I ordered it, but I was happy to find the manufacturer included one. There was no hardware for connecting it, but I had a handbrake from the sail project. I bought a 2-meter cable, and some cable stops to terminate at the lever. There was trouble crimping the ferrule at the cut end, and I measured incorrectly the first time I cut the sheath. The first time I tightened the cable stop, it came loose. Once the brake was operational, I immediately loved it. I felt stable when I stood still, and maneuvering was easier when I wasn't under power. I tested on the street and was more confident than last time because I could stop in an emergency.
