• It’s easier to cut (main reason) and it’s better in compression and shear than Nomex. You’d usually use Nomex on thinner gaps. I shaved a thicker bit down to the correct thickness. Bonding it in is no different as I’ve used what I believe is the strongest 2-part epoxy adhesive available. We’ve got stronger adhesive films which are lighter, but I’d have to tape it all up and vac bag it, whereas with this I can just spread it on and weight it down on the surface table overnight. I forgot to take a pic before I put it together!

    Is it cured yet? Let's see some pics. Will this have a carbon brake track?

  • I need to linish it round the edge, but it’s cured and ready to mark up for the hub. Brake tracks, from what I can make out, seem to be an abrasive coating on the rim. I haven’t got anything like that I can use. My Russian disc and Corima 4-spoke don’t have anything on them.
