Ok - simple Q on brake stays

1320 Views 16 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  monkey
You guys running modern forks with drum brakes - Where do you mount the brake stay?

I'm thinking of machining a spacer and using a long bolt into the upper caliper tab on the L side.

Of course I know I'm overthinking this but I would like to know what others are doing.

Sheesh - Titanium!

I don't even have any tools that will cut that stuff. I know from experience it's a b*tch to work. Somebody once gave me some ti mesh - i soon realized why it was free when I tried to do something with it.
Yeah, we eventually used the mesh for a bbq grill surface. Cut it with an air cutoff wheel.

Thanks for the tip.
