    an ongoing project. here are picts of modified rag joint with disc brake (not completed yet). got tired of panic stops with calipur brakes, so am trying to add disc brake and also leaving calipur brake with it. don't know if both will work together or not. bob

    Great idea.
    Did you make the spacer between the sprocked and disc rotor?

    Hi wheelbender yes i made the spacer between disc and gear and also the piece that goes around hub that everything bolts to. i figured that was the only way to get it to run true. am running brake off of axle so it should align up even if you adjust the wheel. still have to make something so calipur is free floating. bob
     
  4. Nice job , I have been trying to design something like this and this looks doable ,is the hub clamp /flange two piece or is it done another way ?

    Simon: the hub is 2 piece. machined the hub one piece then cut it to fit around axle. made the clamp out of a piece of thick wall pipe (cause that is what i had). if i was to do it over would put the clamp in the hub itself. Good luck on making yours. bob
