I took this on it’s maiden voyage today up Mt. Shasta, to almost 8,000
feet above the sea, then enjoyed a 14 mile twisty descent averaging 37mph. There was plenty of high-speed hairpinning to test a prototype brake…
My opinions: this brake is more powerful than the Racer (due to the shorter arms?), with at least the same smooth modulation, maybe better. There’s never a point where you can’t keep applying more power.
It eats a 40mm Honjo fender, no problem. 35mm cyclocross tires fit too, but not with what I’d call mud clearance. I imagine the sweet spot on this brake will be a 25-32mm tire with fenders.
There are still some design elements to tweak, but it’s gettin’ close. And nope, I’ve not a clue when they’ll drop.

Well, it’s finished. One month, 28 minifigures and five pieces of equipment later and I’m finally done. I just wanna give a huge thanks to everyone for stopping by and putting up with my figures day after day, you guys are awesome :3
