Triton Schlumpf Build - Brake Pics

Just in case anyone was curious about the brake adapter in the prev post. The rusty washers are actually quite comfortable for braking.

That's half a Magura holder? Neat!

Yes - a 1/2 Magura holder. The shape is good as it clears the central bar and puts the washers closer to the fingers.

It doesn't really look that outdated to me. The saddle certainly isn't.

Magura Rim Brake with custom handle attachment made from a Magura mount and washers
Looks nice, assuming you are ambidextrous for braking. I would be slightly concerned that the handle wouldn't run smoothly with the asymmetric force, or that it's pivoting axle would wear out because of it.

I had to do some special spoke lacing, but it works fine so far.
You described it very well, it would work as a refererence for someone doing the same thing.

one of the spokes looks damaged in the hub pic, but its not.
I couldn't spot it.

Good job all in all, and nice muni!

This sounds like the best argument for running a rim brake instead of a disc brake since it transmits zero stress to the gearing and uses the entire diameter of the wheel for its braking force.

Yeah wearing out the gears prematurely on my £1300 hub doesn't sound like something I want, but I also don't want to grind my sexy rim down The sooner they make an internal disk Schlumpf the better (Or make those adaptors shown above!)

use all the spokes.

Use a disc mounted to the hub, pretty much no stress on the gears.

Thanks for the kind words above.

I've ridden this setup intensely for the past few weeks and the wheel has stayed true. I have not noticed any signs of extra stress on the hub.

Yes, my build is sort of half-retro. I really like the KH Zero/One saddle, and the newer tubeless rims/tires (I ride in the thorn capital of the world I think)

The brake handle operates smoothly, but I've had other, older Magura handles break on the thin part underneath the bolt mounting the handle to the lever. Its possible my custom brake could've caused the break, but the handles were also 30 years old so that didn't help.

If anyone is interested in more details on 32h rim >>> 36h Schlumpf lacing I'd be happy to discuss in more detail , and/or provide pics. Just PM me.
