Re: electric front brake

As a blanket statement I disagree whole heartedly.

If we look at braking force, not only does the average drum have 2-3 times the contact area, 100% of the contact is at the outer perimeter of...

Re: electric front brake

Re: Kandy

Axle sliders fit beautifully, its a little anti-climatic without the wheel, but at least the drum can just hang out there for now.
