has anyone tryed mounting a disk brake
rotor the same way we mount the sproket????
just a thought
That would be a disaster, broken spokes everywhere and that's if you could even get the caliper mounted to properly match up with the rotor. There is a reason that hubs are made specifically for disc brakes.
Stick to the standard mounting methods to prevent damage.
However, I encourage you continue to question the way we do things and look for alternatives.
You can do that here.
then answer me this
why is it a good enuff way to push
our bike to 30mph+ speeds but not
good enuff to stop us
i could understand in a panic stop
but no one panic stops with the front
please dont flame me im just trying
to think outta the box
Do you think the torque forces generated on braking equal the forces generated by a piss pot HT engine accelerating or maintaining speed?
When it comes down to it - the "rag joint" style of sprocket mounting is a stop gap, half ***ed method at best TBH, I'd hate to compound alla problems with sprocket alignment w/brake issues too... not to mention the probability of rotor fouling w/chain oil.
Jim makes an awesome adapter that bypasses all that BS and it seems to me I saw a disk adapter around sumwheres... bedanged if I can remember where tho lol
ok since disk seems out i found around my shop
an old puch moped wheel with drum brake
its 17 " wheel but looks ok to me
with my xtra chop it helps get the pedels
closer to the ground
