I just mounted Brycer’s Frankenbrake on my 36 KH. I haven’t ridden any hills yet with the roads being snowy, but on flat, I’m having no rubbing during mounting, bank turning, and or idling. They are working very well.
When I first put them on, I found my wheel was dished and far from true. I trued up my wheel and now have a large space between the rim and the pads, all the around now. I’m really glad to have this large of a gap, so I’m sure these brakes can be set to never rub, except when applied.
The gap is so large, that in the future I’ll better adjust the mounting of the slaves to be closer to the wheel to reduce the extension of the pads necessary to contact the wheel. There is also a knob on the brake lever that can be used to easily just dial the pads up closer to the wheel. I imagine it’s best to set up the slave cylinders as close as possible, and tweak the knob to fine tune.
I’m looking forward to using these brakes.
Thank you Brycer, for helping me get the right setup, and customizing the hose lengths perfect for my uni.
