But do you need the extra stopping power of disks vs the almost maintenance free use of drums.Same reason that Jaguar stopped using drums 60 years ago ( discs are more efficient )
Now 2014 BS EN Standard also points to to ISO 4210in the case of a pedal cycle which is not a bicycle, they comply with the standards for braking systems fitted to a bicycle which comply with clause 4.6.8 of the 2014 BS EN Standard
So as far as I can tell you need two efficient independent braking systems split front /back.not apply to specialized types of bicycle, such as delivery bicycles, recumbent bicycles, tandems, BMX bicycles, and bicycles designed and equipped for use in severe applications such as sanctioned competition events, stunting, or aerobatic manoeuvres.
