Breaking my brake

Breaking my brake

my bespoke Research Dynamics Coyote pro 4 mountain bike that has served me as a trustee gravel bike had a little bit of an issue during my last ride. I noticed loss of breaking power from the rear brake and I realized one of the bolts in the rear caliper head worked its way loose and eventually out. rather than having absolutely no breaks I was able to utilize a zip tie and have some rear braking which made the ride a bit spicy at times but still safer than having no rear brakes whatsoever.
