Gotta love the old IRD Rotary brakes. There was an old MBA (I think it was MBA) that did a break shootout and I beleive they said the Rotary was the strongest brake they ever tested. I still like the feel of a WTB Toggle better but these are still way cooler and much harder to find.
Great pics of the brake. I have two of them, but am waiting to find the right frame to put them on!
Can't see what kind of lever you're running. What's stopping power like? I've heard there are bid rim width/ boss spacing and boss height combos that keep you from getting the stopping power you want.
I've always wondered about running them with SLR Plus levers.
It has a shimano xt 3 gen with the attached push push shifter and that slr with clear window over it. That might be too much for it. It would probably be better with something like a diacompe ss-something
Too much power? Never! I really can't wait to get a frame with U-Brake bosses on it, and run precisely the brake combo you're talking about. In fact, I also fantasize about getting an XT U-Brake and running it with one of the Cannondale Force 40 rocker cam thingies. I guess I am an incurable brake weirdo.
