    Brake drum shoe pad replacement

    I'm working on what appears to be a Chinese mini chopper, recently the back brake pads fell off of the shoe (they weren't adhered to the shoe) and cracked. Any ideas where I can get new pads for them? Looked just to buy the whole shoe, but none of them online match up with what I need. Thanks!

    About scrub brakes??

    Looking at a minibike but pics are blurry. About all I can tell for sure is it has a scrub brake and needs a new home and some TLC. Out of curiosity was wondering about what year scrubs were discontinued

A percentage mechanical advantage (leverage) is lost by the friction of all of the resistance in the cams and the levers binding...

    DB30 front brakes

    I am toying with the idea of installing front brakes on my Doodlebug. I have seen a couple of picks of people doing it with a rear wheel on the front. I know the forks are not the strongest things in the world but how much braking force will be applied with the cable operated caliper? The...
