Today Flybikes dropped a preview of their new Manual brakes using the “Springhanger” system which essentially removes the springs from the arms and puts it on the bridge cable for easy installation and adjustment. This is one item I personally cannot wait to be able to get my hands on…
“The next item in our 2015 preview is something we have been working on for a few years now and we’re very excited to finally release it! The new Manual Springhanger brakes use our new brake system which eliminates the springs on the brake mounts with an oversized spring as the cable hanger that also creates the tension on the arms.
This concept is very simple. We have removed the copper inserts and springs on the arms with kevlar washers and use the spring to adjust the tension by simply bending the spring inward or outward to your preferred tension. By doing this, we have simplified installation, made adjusting the tension more simplistic and given the brakes a cleaner look.
The Manual Springhanger brakes come with the hanger, spring, arms, brake pads and two sets of bolts; one for welded on and Easy Brake System mounts and another for removable brake mounts.
These will be available in October through all shops and mail-orders that carry Flybikes worldwide!”
