Rear brake

I have yet to play on this. Just built it up a couple of minutes ago. Rides awesome! The frame is a bit small for me but methinks I like it so far. I love the lower-fitted u-brake forged to the chainstay. Oh baby, no one's gonna bash my brakes!

I found this frame in an alley and everything else (except the cog and the new Schwalbe Marathon PLUS) I had lying around. All in all, a cheap experiment. Woot woot. Watch out world, the SHADOW is comin for ya!!!! 

fuck ya, this almost makes we want to change the drop-down options for the brake to include u-brake.  that thing even has a stabilizer bar on it, weren't those after-market?

I recently built up a community polo bike that had a U-brake on it. I think they rock for polo bikes. If I had my ideal placement, I think I would prefer mine to be just on the inside of the rear triangle, up where the brake bosses would normally go.

i actually really like the brake placement but have to say, after two nights of putting this mo sheen to the test, it is a bit small. c'est la vie!!

That's pretty sweet, Martin. Did the brake end up not working?

Anyway, you're better off with a fixed brakeless roadbike.

MALICE for the people.

that brake is from about 1988. And that doesn't put it in the "cool vintage" category, more like the "dustbin of bike history" category. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/canti-u.html#u
