Brake therapy is what a few crazy people ran in the early 2000s... Worked alright

literocola: How does that work? Does that thing come with a spacer of some sort to place a disc on the axle? I have a flip/flop hub which I think won't give me enough space for clearance for the brake itself when mounted on. Are there special braces that'll attach for a flip/flop for a disc? I know a picture's worth a thousand words, but I got a million questions here. That dosen't really solve the whole problem I have. The rear triangle frame alone they recommended's a problem. Plus I think it'd interfere with my chain adjuster.
Just found this on Youtube, ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SGwOT7Rqpx4 ) but I'm not about to do all that work, with the lacing, tureing, but the nipple twisting's not that bad. It gives me good thoughts. Disc brake adapter?

Looked at this, not sure yet where in the US it's available. http://velosolo.co.uk/faq.html

Can you take a photo of your bike and what parts your working with?

I tried to understand your post, but I cant. As far as the A2Z adapter works, you just bolt it together on your rear drop out. You will need a 6 bolt hub, disk rotor, and brake caliper.

I just dont know what your trying to do? Make a 6 bolt fixed drive train for a FFW? Or trying to add a disk to a nondisk frame?

"bmx sized bike with disc brakes" In this case a 2005 DK Fury 24. The dropouts are different, and I'm not sure if it'll fit. I have a custom wheel set with a flip/flop TNT Derringer hub. I found this, for that. (disc brake adapter - free or flip-flip hub)
http://www.bicycledesigner.com/bike-parts/bicycle-brake/disc-brake-adapter---free-or-flip-flip-hub.html
Ok, they deleted the site, and I'm not sure if it'll fit either. They suggested different hubs, and weld on mounts, cause my chain adjuster won't let any conversion system fit on to the dropouts. But I'm broke from buying parts already, any suggestions? Boss said: No overtime available.

I would honestly not waste your time with it.


Save up for a proper bike, or upgrade the brakes on it.. Why do you want discs so badly?

bmx brakes suck and mod geometries suck
disk brakes suck too

you can run a 20" rim on a mod but i dont think you could get away with more than a 2.3" tire

Agreed.

You would have to weld a brake tab on there.

You can find some cheap deals on here for used stuff, just gotta keep your eyes on the forsale section and some cash on hand.. because when those deals come up, they get sold quick.

Really? Buy the right stuff and your ass bone will thank you later. Cant wait to see how you mount a rotor on a flipflop hub. Zip ties????

Well, my point is to save, and work with what you got. If i had the machines for it, I'd build it myself, but I don't. What I was thinking was traditional brake pads for a disc at least (rubber based), instead these guys that make em, made em like motorcross for the integral structure of the disc and pads, and to minimizes the weight and space available. I don't know, I guess I just wanna ride like I killed two angels, and took their halos, and used em for rims. I guess a rim guards' an option for brake pads for traditional BMX brakes, but that'd just add more weight. Most complicated thought was something like the Superman ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain California, mag rails micro sized for inside my rims, reverse polarity unit clamped on the lower tube on my dropouts, solar pannels would be on my bar pads, and have an electronic lever that activates the polarity field reaction by blue tooth, lol.. Fuck it I'm getting coaster brakes.

See this guy had the right idea. But I don't even know where this thing's available or if it's even custom made. It was labeled getto, but if the frame he attached it to had ridges on it like handlebars would, maybe there's a chance to it. With an adaptor for a flip/flop hub and rubber pads for the disc, I'd settle for this.

http://urbanvelo.org/montano-velo-fixed-hub-disc-adapter/ Now these dudes claim this is the solution. "120mm spaced ‘cross or track bike," I don't know what the hell that means but it sounds smaller than "135mm rear spacing" mentioned at that post. Without the mount being machined into your frame for a BMX type size, it'll still cost you some labor fees. And that's just more bs I really don't wanna deal with.

that would not work for trials, there is too much backwards force on the brakes.

it would only cost $20 to get a disk tab and a brace welded to a frame if you had everything prepped.

I'm just looking for solutions dude. Here's another one I saw similar. http://urbanvelo.org/broakland-fixed-hub-disc-adapter-v2/ Backwards force won't make a difference if you had it turned right of the opposite of the drive, or hub thread. The disc just might lock up on the hub. I guess $20 bucks isn't that bad for a mount. But I'm still looking for a lightweight conversion. I don't really feel like wobbling while pedaling. By the way, who's alexzero13?
