To him, it seems the two are one and the same. If you're in neutral down a hill, you MUST be riding the brakes. Your brakes must also be in poor condition, have parts replaced with below spec cheap and/or unsuitable parts, or be from 40+ years ago.

Yup. But the guy's not stupid. His ego is preventing him from admiting a post-o.
He likes to lecture about safety, then admits he speeds or rides his bicycle in heavy traffic. Go figure <shrug>.

Among other things already mentioned, like a _very_ long, steep, grade is needed to raise the likelihood of a brake malfunction to something meaningful.
You're wrong on this one, Jim.

Wow, altitude and mountainous terrain affects gas mileage? very interesting. Who says you don't learn something new everyday?
Thanks for the info

Not to mention that it will cause worse gas milage. Modern fuel-injected engines shut off fuel flow when decelerating, but have to maintain fuel flow for the engine to idle. Dan (This account is not used for email.)
