    Optimal brake temperatures

    What would be the optimal operating window temperatures for Drum brakes, Steel brakes and Carbon-Ceramic brakes? Preferably in Celsius.

    steel: 300-400C, peaking at 600-700 at the end of the biigest brake zone
    carbon: 700-800C peaking at 1000-1100

    I usually use those numbers. dont drive drum brake cars.

    Thanks, and I do, on my old bicycle. I am still trying to reach 300C on my brakedrums, I'll probably die trying
