Amazing brake!

I'm loving the Tektro time trial brake... I've always wondered what one of those would look like on a fixed gear.

Though, I'd almost want to try a different cable routing. What if you could run the cable through the top of the stem and inside the fork column so the cable exits at the bottom of the fork, making a tidy loop to the brake noodle? You'd need to figure out a way to secure the headset without a top cap and starnut, but it's been done before.

Just a thought. Beautiful bike.

re: brake

Hey thanks! I totally agree with you - the cable routing is a bit loose and distracting. Maybe I can drill a hole on the underside of the stem? I wouldn't want to mess with the structure of the fork, however, as carbon has a reputation for fracturing. Also, I don't think there's enough clearance with the tire to feed it through the bottom of the fork. For now, I've just taken the brake and lever off (mainly because I'm having issues with my headset) so we'll see what changes once I figure things out. Thanks again! ahh.. bike love.

I was led here by way of the fixed gear gallery.... So I had to give a shout-out.

Subcomment: The haiku engraved on my stem and the monograms engraved on my toeclips were done by me with a computerized engraving machine. email me at Dan@goatfilms.com if you want any componentry personalized, I'll see what I can do.
