    Saw these on the Flicker Back Road Bike Group. Cool pics all around but these levers are elegant. I didn't make them or know anything more about them. I just like them.

    The modern bolt pattern wasn't the only difference. The position of the rotor also had to be pushed more outboard to work with modern discs. The tricky part was figuring out how much, and then how to get the bolts to sit below the surface so the rotor would mount flush. It took machining off the bolt head a little to work. Not sure how well it will work, as it has yet to be tested.

    I'm getting interested in trying my hand at some homemade rollercams, but do not have access to a reference set. I'm at work mucking around with the CAD system so can't measure the ones on my bike right now. Can someone please tell me the center to center distance of the mounting holes.
    Thanks

    80-90mm seems about the range.
    I have a frame with U-brake mounts on the rear seat stays and they are 87mm apart.

    Very nice set of lever links! Are those brass bushings press fit or loose fit?

    Very impressive - the brass accents are a nice touch.

    WOW! i'm by no means an expert but i'm amazed at the stuff in this thread. i'd love to be able to produce something like these from scratch but my brain just doesn't think in 3d...

    thanks all for sharing your work.

    Although not nearly as impressive as the other stuff in this thread I found a need to make some replacement crown race seats for a Bontrager Comp fork that the previous owner had pummeled. I had then anodized before installing them.

    Very nice crown race seats! I need to make a bunch of those myself.

    Loose fit. The aluminum is 2024-T6 and may have enough hardness to act as its own bearing surface. Or it needs to be hard-anodized, we shall see.

    The latest...

    Needed a canti cable hanger for a '96 Marzocchi fork (when they still had a removeable hanger you could bolt to the arch). Unfortunately, I only had a couple grainy pics and a pair of calipers. Took a bit of measuring, but the end result works. I may re-make it and move the stop up further, as the traddles cable is pretty close to the tire.

    1st pic is from the fork owners manual.

    Here are a few cable stops I made for a friend's FUNK.
    What a weird design to have the cable stops as separate screw in items

    Nice work guys!

    Classen, at one time those stops were a Suntour framebuilding catalog item, but sadly nowhere to be found these days. Trek used them a lot on the bonded frames. When installing it helps to use Loctite or a Nylon washer underneath (ala Mantis) to set the orientation. Nice threading to a shoulder.

    Mine for WTB multimounts,

    DC, Do you have a picture of the jig you used to bend the steel for this spring?



    I have been totally inspired by Charlie Cunningham's modern take on the roller/toggle cam brakes so I pretty much plagiarized his design as best I could.

    These are from one of Mike's bikes at Black Mountain Cycles.



    Here is my version:




    I think I got a bit carried away with the 2000 grit sand paper, but it's kinda therapeutic.

    I'm still working on the springs and the brake booster (lots and lots of hand filing and sanding)

    Try bending them manually in a lathe after putting the 90 degree bend in them.

    There's on thing I've never heard mentioned in these CC Roller/Toggle threads. How much do they weigh? With all the iterations/tweaking done over the years I can imagine the numbers are all over the map.
