Better braking system?

I don't like to use rim brakes.
They are weak.
Does anyone have better brake system?

I need better rear brake...
because i live in colder climate and it's too dangerous to use front brake all the time.
i saw a HD rear axle which is from Grubee.
It uses drum brake. it seems pretty nice but They are not on the market :cry:

I really like that setup, besides the brakes the sprocket is independent of the spokes.

I think he may mean the sprocket is just bolted to the rotor, thus eliminating it as a braking option.
Tandem hubs sometimes have drum brakes, plus they have got more holes for more spokes....and more strength.
That product looks nice. But not very many sprocket options (who in the heck would want a 56t?)
What kind of rim brakes do yo have? Perhaps there are better options, better pads, finer adjustments, ect. to be had?

i have shimano deore rim brake for rear, but i don't like to use rim brake because i have to true the wheel all the time very precisely. if not the brake won't work strong. I'm used to disc brakes and disc brakes works graet even when the wheel is not trued.
