How sure-footed are the brakes?

The 80/100/18 sized tyres (installed on alloy wheels) of the Dream CD 110 provide a good balance in handling and ride. It offers excellent ride performance and despite 18-inch wheels, the front tyre is quite responsive. However, the bike's braking is of average quality as the bike is equipped with drum brakes at both ends with the rear in use for most stopping duties.
