    Our front is a Hope mono-6 with 224 rotor. That never held up for the rear, so now its a Brembo for KTM set-up with a long braided line and a 219 rotor that is a much bigger heat sink than the cooked hayes 224 in the photo. Hope rotors are 225.

    I built the bike (my first tandem) in 2010. Then in 2013 I first rode with my copilot Dustin. That's five years of riding/racing fun after an initial three years with three stokers.
