But I agree with you on brakes. If they don't work properly, you're hosed.
Bike set up is very important indeed, and especially so for newcomers with little of no hands on riding experience.

However proper set up doesnt just relate to one or 2 area's, for the simple reason that unless all areas of the bike are working well together, its quite impossible to get the very best out of it.
