    So it begins! Will the range of motion be adequate?
    May experiment with it further down the frame with a longer tab, which would increase the range of motion.

    NC or NO switch?

    another method is a micro switch that you could mount off a thin plate with appropriate holes mounted to the caliper pivot bolt, etc..

    water and dirt is the issue. maybe a reed switch and magnet or a hall effect sensor is a better option?

    It's a NC. I didn't consider the water and dirt. Maybe I can use a cable cover from a V brake, and cut it to fit over it. I haven't even wired it up yet.

    The bikes just a hobby, and does not warrant the cost of additional investing, and I enjoy the creative tinkering. I also have a low tolerance to exposed wiring.

    K I thought I could make it a little easier. I have an ebike as well. I use it for short trips the grocery store.
