I’ve just bought magura hs33, the standart bike lever isn’t comfortable to use on uni. Have anybody crafted something like Kris Holm spooner? Post pictures, please.
I used the KH starfighter. I had to do some filing on the brake lever but it works great.
Here’s my backyard spooner. It’s just a piece of Aluminium (Aluminum for you yankees) drilled and held on with zip ties. I’ve been using it for a couple of years doing Muni and have had no problems with it.
Mine is a welded spooner… it’s homemade but it can’t be made by anyone haha. I love it, it’s shaped like a spoon so my finger gets stuck in the middle of it. Way easier to hold in technical muni!
This is mine.
Two pieces of a PE cutting board, two brass threaded inserts and screws, shaped with saw, file and drill.
Because of the weight’s increase of the brake lever due to the spooner, I also have had to make a new return spring, the stock one was too weak and the lever tended to swing.
The original spring is made of a 0.7mm diameter wire, mine is of a 1mm wire and there are no more oscillations.
That is simplicity and elegance. Great work!
Now that’s “change” we can believe in!
This is the best home brew spooner I’ve seen. How’s the feel?
I like the idea of changing coin size or stacking coins to get a specific feel. I may never use a star fighter again!
I can not compare it with anything, it’s my first spooner, but it feels awesome. However i will expiriment with other coins.
Finally a use for the British £5 coin!
