    LBS Rig

    So after lots of Delays due to border issues, Mike has my rig in the queue. There are a lot of fine details yet to be done but it is on it's wheels. Let us hope the adventures continue this summer. Alaska or Tuk any one?

    Some more progress, Mike found an extra pair of Calipers. Makes for a better routing of the brake lines and the bleed procedure. I find that it just looks right.

    Un-like my current rig where the brakes are kind of hidden from view but maybe more protected. Allows me to run a rear wheel and tire combo for a much larger foot print on the ground and less wiggle of a car tire on the rough stuff.

    Is the braking force the same as using two disk?

    It feels like it is actually better. Might be the larger tire foot print more than an increase in brake force. Irregardless, there was a lot of work that went into design and building of this set up. Not me of course. Ad Donkers of LBS in the Netherlands.
    Mike from LBS-USA is building the second rig for me using pieces built by Ad in the Netherlands
