    is a drum brake the same as a band brake?

    I am not sure...I always thought band brake tightened around something, where a drum expands the shoes

    but... I have been known to be wrong before :lol: :lol: :lol:
    and as long as it's a brake and has the sprocket mount, it''ll work for me 8)

    Edit the title to rear hub w/brake. It will be an easy search for others.

    No deep linking here Act like you're going to order a bike. In the options they list several rear hubs. The one with a brake is for a single speed a lists for $80. Ask if they will sell one seperate or offer you a source. Mention this site. :smile:
    Best I got...Good luck!

    does grubee sell those to individuals at all or is it a... dream to get one?

    a new member has the whopper stopper kit, wonder where it came from?

    we're trying to hunt down reputable and reliable sources for grubee stuff...see my other topic in here.

    aye augi... I posted there talking about it a day or two ago. Was just curious.

    Note: The parts supplier listed in Grubee's site does not carry hubs and things like that due to the massive quantity needed to be ordered apparently. Other parts are the same way so I have no idea that may be the barrier to entry for this is not enough people order the stuff?

    :lol: yeah, i noticed that was you :lol:

    i wasn't trying to push you around, but i see my post may have looked that was just info for anyone who sees it...

    i know this hub is a part i'd love to locate, along with the all-in-one throttle...'kronik, keep the faith. maybe we should ask don g. where the stuff might be?

    There just isn't enough people out there yet to justify one shop or individual to invest that much money in a minimum quantity to ship from china. That's why this stuff is not available anywhere. On the other side of the coin, how does a shop in Australia have enough demand to get to the min's and no one in the USA does? It's ridiculous! I say we put the word out and organize a GROUP purchase on some of the most sought after items from china ourselves! Even if it takes a month or two to gather all the interested parties and money, it would still be better than going that far across the pond. Is there a shop that would be interested in sponsoring a group purchase? Let's get it together.

    gaspoiler why is it bad to order from Australia. Its not like Australian Post is that expensive no more expensive than UPS/DHL and so forth.

    BTW I have called everybody in the USA and it seems very unlikely given the "Two Stroke Ban"

    Nobody is even willing to import parts for any of it apparently? What they have is what they have and I guess here comeith the 4 stroke? from grubee anyway.
