just run a long hydro hose and unwind it or pre-wind the opposite way...dirtyharry said:I don't think it is, but I was wondering if you can somehow run a rear hydraulic brake and still have a gyro/do barspins. I know you can run front hydraulic w/ gyro.
I have no idea what you are talking about there.... but Hayes did in Fact produce a hybrid cable operated hydraulic disc brake caliper, for use with a V-brake lever. It was all cable (yes, could be used with a gyro if pull was sufficient), but had a hydraulic slave cylinder on the caliper that compressed the pads (using cable pull instead of master cylinder). This was probably in the mid to late 90's, so don't expect that they work well, haha. but, I've seen some cheap, yet rare, on ebay, and thought of picking one up as an experiment... never did though...dirtyharry said:That's what I figured. Couldn't you technically put a HUGE resevoir right behind (free of the headset and shorter than the handlebars) the stem and have a free-to-twist-around cable coming in the top from the lever and then a stationary one going to the brake?
that's pretty damn interesting..... but, I'd never want one on my bike.... just when I'm trying to make things simpler... I like the innovation though. I wonder how much extra it weighs on top of the basic frame too, and how much hydro fluid goes into the headtube?ihatemybike said:
what is wrong with the brakes that come on the P. street?? what happened to you getting a P1 chomo? Just get a freakin' bike and ride it exactly how it is, or however you can afford it and don't complain until your bag of tricks exceeds the bike's capability... summer's coming to a close.... better get on something a start pedaling...dirtyharry said:I figured you would say that. Will you atleast tell me a really good mechanical rim brake I can put on the P. Street if I end up getting one?
