Weinmanns can be run with the cables reversed to give an aero look :wink:

Steve

You have a PM re Dia Compe levers.

Is that a Trike in the Picture with the double brakes?

Any chance of a close up of how the brakes are configured to share on the On Three Wheels Trike riders forum?

It is a spacer kit available from Chris Hewitt.

It's already posted somewhere on the trike forum. The spacers are standard connecting nuts available from most DIY or hardware stores, with the addition of a couple of washers. The rear has the brake arm bolts reversed. :wink:

Interesting. It looks like you have done away with the straddle cables on centre pull callipers and mounted the cables sideways, bit like v brakes. if I'm right, do they work well. I can't get hold of weinmann straddle cables and this may be a good fix for a beater bike

Apologies, a for sale thread has turned into a tech thread
