Brakes

Post by Marvin » Tue May 08, 2012 7:37 am

I thought many people would be interested to know that you can get the magura hs11 brakes which were used for the ABS systems now from chain reaction cycles at the princely sum of 52.99 per brake just have to sort out mounts then (Y)

If you can work the mounts out, you could realistically use any brake kit...

Ben - you think you could make something similar to hold a disk brake calliper?

if i had a look at it i might. to be 100 percent honest i just copied nicks idea and followed it to the T as i knew it was tried and tested.

i could definately make pretty much anything... but so can any one else if you know the right people or just pay a professional the real skill is in designing something that will work well and tolerate the abuse.

got anything in mind?

Yeah - disk brake callipers seem to have a standard bolt pattern to attach to the bike frame; if we can make a mount to match that (basically the same as NoSno), then I think we could use any disk brakes we can pick up cheap off eBay etc.

Then its a matter of getting the rotors sorted - but I have been thinking about that as well and might have a solution.

Brakes

Post by silver shredder » Fri May 11, 2012 8:56 am

Hi guys
I have been getting quite a few email requests for brakes.When I sold the Alpine brakes concern to the Swiss gentleman I assumed he would be taking it forward sadly this does not appear to be the case. If I can get some HS 11's at the right price I am considering making a batch of brakes. If you want brakes get in touch and if there is a reasonable demand I may well be tooling up in the near future.

Nick,
I have had 3 boarders (non forum members) approach me asking about ABS availability. I will point them in your direction.

Disc brake mounts

Post by silver shredder » Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:07 pm

Here are some pics of the disc set up I built before I went down the magura route. It was a good job I had an aerospace engineer helping me.[ATTACH]1090[/ATTACH]

Its out there somewhere as I sold it to Kev Kimber [remember him?] it was very effective but would scrub out the pads very quickly

I was wondering who made them, did you try nosno disks on them, maybe the solid disk was wearing them out. I think Chris (6thdegree) said he found similar disks for mini motos or something too.

Unfortunately yes. The board has probably vanished into the ether along with apollo11 and the money from many disgruntled customers who never received their order or any explaination... shady bastard.
