"Spoon brakes"

Understandably rare with pneumatic tyres - "With the introduction of mass-produced pneumatic tyres by the Dunlop Tyre Company, the use of spoon brakes began to decline, as they tended to quickly wear through the thin casing of the new tyres..." !!

so "spoon brakes" in english, good to know. Some classic bicycle dealers in Germany and Austria are still offering special tyres which seems to withstand the force that kind of brakes apply.

Steyr Puch did produce their "Waffenrad", with that spoon brakes, till the 80's :o
