I need better rear brake...
because i live in colder climate and it's too dangerous to use front brake all the time.
i saw a HD rear axle which is from Grubee.
It uses drum brake. it seems pretty nice but They are not on the market :cry:

I really like that setup, besides the brakes the sprocket is independent of the spokes.

I think he may mean the sprocket is just bolted to the rotor, thus eliminating it as a braking option.
Tandem hubs sometimes have drum brakes, plus they have got more holes for more spokes....and more strength.
That product looks nice. But not very many sprocket options (who in the heck would want a 56t?)
What kind of rim brakes do yo have? Perhaps there are better options, better pads, finer adjustments, ect. to be had?

i have shimano deore rim brake for rear, but i don't like to use rim brake because i have to true the wheel all the time very precisely. if not the brake won't work strong. I'm used to disc brakes and disc brakes works graet even when the wheel is not trued.

About disc brakes...the front fork on my bike has a bracket for disc brakes, but that is all I have. Do the disc brakes attach to a normal hub, or do you have to change to a disc brake hub? I've looked around on the net but have not found any info on them.

Thanks, that's what I figured. I don't want to spend any more money on this thing at this time. I'm not satisfied with it so far so it may not stay around here. :lol:

any one wanna buy HD rear axle kit over at alibaba?

it said 26 dollars each unit.

so it would be $2600 for 100 of them.

I wonder how much will be the shipping.

We should get them :)
