More or less looking for a real world comparison. I appreciate all of you input!
Ask someone to watch you threshold braking. The front wheel should lock either a moment before the rear or simultaneously. If the rear wheel locks first, DTC-70 in front will be better. If the front wheel is already locking first, DTC-70 won't help. Also, if the back end is coming around too easily in trail braking, DTC-70 in front would reduce that.
