sir, i think the on the 2nd vid, the lady got it wrong when she said that you only use your rear break when descending. use this technique on fast descents and you'll probably be toast (you'll skid a lot). i think it should be a combination of front and a liitle of rear breaking. front breaks for stopping / reducing speed & rear breaks for control.
yup i agree with the two of you i think it should be the combination of front and rear! i use often the front brakes cause i even do it with the super dooper mega over technical trail descending fast the rock! but when i hit the rear brakes it justs twist having a fishtail and loosing my control heheheh ouch!
I think the video was meant for those who are just starting to get into mountainbiking & the instruction to use the rear brake when descending was more of a simplified instruction for a lot of "beginners". Most people who just started mtbiking tend to grip both brakes hard when they get scared on a descent thus, the endo - hehe. Teaching them to hit the rear brake first is a good safety instruction in the beginning. ALTHOUGH, I didn't hear her explain the mechanics of using the front & rear brakes. Front break for slowing down & rear brake for control.
based on my experience, use could use both in moderation to gain control. but never slam it-alas you'll end up crashing especially when you're going downhill. but it is more exciting by not using brakes when going down.
