(technically clueless about the Hope bit)...You're on about this mounting bracket :http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... p;t=253565
being used with an Odyssey B booster (I have a very similar one in my spares box) I just need you to clarify slightly by telling me which holes on the caliper mount
This is option 2 to try if 'suburbanruebens' idea doesn't work
Cheers for all the input gents.
Actually its not the brake mount im referring to . On the link- look at the torque arm coming off that mount. It goes up to a brake boss and bolts on ?? Got that
Now. consider that, all the force from the Disc mount goes into the one side only(well it is obviously attached to one side) How would you spread that load?? Fit a brake booster because that will spread the load between BOTH brake pivots(to clarify) the 'brake pivots' are the pegs V brakes and cantis mount on to)
Now look at your pic of the carbon booster bolted on to both the pegs. Look at the top of it and behind
What do you see? Correct- the seat stay bridge(little short tube with hole directly in the middle)
Now. what is your booster had another hole in the top of it, like the mounting holes on the sides.
