I haven't had brakes any time in the recent past so I don't feel like I need them, but I've heard the TLT Speed radical tower tends to rotate into ski mode while skinning?  Is this a valid issue still?  If so , is it a non-issue with the braked version, the Radical ST?  Any other words of wisdom? :)
